After Fisk came out to tell her that the part was hers, “We sped off before anybody could change his mind,” Spacek said. I am so glad I picked this up as part of Lesley's #ReadKidsLit project. She and Beezus manage to convince their parents to let them stay home alone together after school for one week to see how it goes. Ramona couldn’t pronounce her real name, Beatrice, so now everyone called her Beezus. They are friends (mainly because their parents are friends) but sometimes they don't like each other. Travolta’s star was on the rise because of his role in Welcome Back, Kotter, but Carrie marked his big-screen debut. I did this, and called it 'Ramona and the Three Wise Persons.' I enjoyed reading from the cat's perspective, which was somehow still easily relatable. Of most importance to Beverly Cleary, her books have won more than thirty-five statewide awards based on the votes of her young readers. While her older sister Beezus calls her a “pest,” Ramona’s imaginative and lively nature is why readers still love her all these years later. Howard "Howie" Kemp is the curly-haired boy who lives right by Ramona. But his mistress’ comfortable lap began to shrink, and then one day Mr. and Mrs. Bricker brought home a new pet.

Read at your own peril. I laughed so hard. Hikers can use this brand-new, updated road atlas to plan their next adventure. One that wailed and smelled funny and stole all the attention that used to be lavished on Socks. Socks is a white-footed kitten taken in to a perfect home: he always has a lap, and is generally spoiled... until the day the baby arrives. I mean, not Casablanca, or anything, but a really good horror-suspense film, much better than the book.” But when it came to recasting the lead and choosing a new director, King had some ideas—specifically, “Lindsay Lohan as Carrie White… hmmm. I laughed so hard. The book attempts to look at the ant farm of high school society dead on; De Palma's examination of this 'High School Confidential' world is more oblique ... and more cutting.”, More than a quarter-century later, in a 2007 interview with Nightline, King seemed slightly less enthusiastic when he said that, "Carrie is a good movie. I guess I could get behind it if they turned the project over to one of the Davids: Lynch or Cronenberg.". She also channels cats. “I longed for funny stories about the sort of children who lived in my neighborhood,” Cleary wrote in her memoir My Own Two Feet. "Once De Palma revealed that he didn’t want a satirical approach and said, ‘You’re going to get a laugh if you do that,’ I realized that he didn’t want laughs, at least not in our conscious performing,” Laurie told HollywoodChicago.com in 2011.

I actually didn't get around to reading this until after my second was born and I'm glad I waited because the story is even more poignant and humorous and heartbreaking and sweet and wise when Socks is seen not just as the displaced cat but in the older sibling role. My son (4) belly laughed out loud at some of Charles William's antics and would randomly bring up events from the book in conversation. It was sweet. I hung up and decided to go for it.". Some of her best known and loved characters are Ramona Quimby and her sister Beatrice ("Beezus"), Henry Huggins, and Ralph S. Mouse. Best-selling children’s author Beverly Cleary enrolled at Chaffey College with aspirations of becoming a children’s librarian. But I really like you and afterwards we’ll party and we’ll have a great time. Children often live out their parents' frustrations. This was far too cute and funny for anything less than 5 Stars! In 1995, she said that, as a child, “I was very much like Ramona when I lived on the farm and was wild and free.” When she got older and moved to Portland, a bad teacher “turned me into Ellen Tebbits, a rather anxious little girl." His antics trying to regain their affection are adorable. Being as big a fan of Beverly Cleary as I am, I can't believe I hadn't read this one before. . I want to feel that alienation.
