It's been a long, long time since I read the series, probably closer to 30 years than 20, and so my memory is a bit hazy. Still, I was amazed at how many scenes and references from of the books came back to me when I found Ramona and Beezus on the HBO in-demand options, and once the movie started rolling. From the "kitty-kat Q" to the proper way to crack a hardboiled egg (a technique I still employ from time to time), to the employment problems of Mr. Quimby.
|I believe this is the edition of the book I had. Beezus was such a square.
