* Nine-year-old Beezus's biggest problem is her little sister, Ramona. Ramona can't understand why Beezus won't read to her or why it's wrong to invite her nursery school class over without telling Mother. But Beezus still loves her---even if Ramona drives her nuts. Paired with Jacqueline Rogers's whimsical illustrations, Cleary's story will delight your 8- to 12-year-olds. 208 pages, hardcover from HarperCollins.
