Ramona tries to cheer up the family as only Ramona can - by rehearsing for life as a rich and famous star of television commercials, for instance - but her best efforts only make things worse. Her sister, Beezus, calls her a pest, her parents lose patience with her, and her teacher claims she's forgotten her manners. But when her father admits he wouldn't trade her for a million dollars, Ramona knows everything is going to work out fine in the end.
For ages 7 to 10.
