Publisher's Summary

Ramona Quimby is thrilled to be starting kindergarten. She likes a little boy named Davy so much she wants to kiss him, and she loves Susan's beautiful curls so much she wants to pull them to see them boing. Her teacher even promises her a present just for sitting still! So how does Ramona get in trouble? Well, anyone who knows Ramona knows that she is never a pest on purpose.

Check out more of Ramona's wacky adventures.

    "A Charming Book and Still Relevant"

    My 6 year old granddaughter and I listened to this twice while on a car trip. My granddaughter is still talking about the book and named one of her dolls Ramona. Even though the kindergarten of 30+ years ago is quite different from today's kindergarten, there is still a universal appeal that connected to my granddaughter and helped her deal with some of her own kindergarten concerns. The narrator does a lovely job.

    Story
    "Stockard Channing hits it out of the park"
    What did you love best about Ramona the Pest?

    Story a great classic. I felt such sympathy for Ramona throughout; she reminds me so much of my own daughter with ADHD and many small children today. It definitely makes you see things through a child's perspective. Stockard Channing did a terrific job on narrating. All the voices she did were pitch perfect, from the Southern belle teacher to Ramona herself, Ramon's mother, etc. It is a wonder she never got confused, but each voice was slightly different and all were good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story plus narration were both just excellent. My 6 year old loved it. Not one particular thing I loved best.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't remember a particular favorite. Most of the stories were very good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No. I don't recall being "moved". Some sections are funnier than others, but I don't remember crying or feeling emotional.


    Any additional comments?

    Also loved the Henry Huggins books from Beverly Clearly as narrated by Neil Patrick Harris. Strongly recommend.

    "Spot on!"

    What a perfectly honest and accurate perspective of a feisty, sensitive, observant, thoughtful five year old, with both kid and adult humor at every turn. A most enjoyable and fun listen for myself and my two kids, age 5 and 8, during the first week of Kindergarten and 2nd! As a child, I loved reading Beverly Cleary, but as an adult I'm appreciating her writing and her setting in a much bigger way, and grateful for her approach to talking about some pretty big things through tears of laughter.

    Story
    "My favorite childhood book comes alive"
    Where does Ramona the Pest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the second audiobook that I've bought for my little kiddos. My 5-year-old loved it, and we've listened twice now. Stockard Channing is a wonderful narrator, and her inner voice of Ramona was perfect.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ramona the Pest?

    So many moments-- listening to this with my kids brought back so many memories from when I read it as a child. I really remembered the earthworm engagement ring, and Susan with the Boing Boing Curls.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and then we started all over!
