Product Description
 
Since Beverly Cleary published the first Ramona Quimby book in 1955, the adventures of her iconic heroine have been brought to life by five different artists: Louis Darling, Alan Tiegreen, Joanne Scribner, Tracy Dockray, and Jacqueline Rogers. This book celebrates their timeless work. Readers can compare multiple interpretations of iconic scenes (remember the infamous egg-cracking incident?), read letters between Darling and Cleary, and learn the stories behind the illustrations. Excerpts from the books and three essays illuminate the series’ narrative and artistic impact. Packed with rich content and nostalgia, this is a gorgeous homage to a classic of children’s literature.Since Beverly Cleary published the first Ramona Quimby book in 1955, the adventures of her iconic heroine have been brought to life by five different artists: Louis Darling, Alan Tiegreen, Joanne Scribner, Tracy Dockray, and Jacqueline Rogers.
