Ramona Quimby: [Watching a commercial, reciting the slogan] "Royal Peanut Butter: There's a bit of magic in every jar"!
Bob Quimby: Is that one of your favorites? That's the rack we gotta get you into, 'cause those TV kids make millions.
Ramona Quimby: Beezus, do you think I could be in a commercial like that?
Beezus: [Fixing Ramona's hair with a curling iron] Sure, you'd make a great frog.
Ramona Quimby: Hey!
Beezus: Hold still. I'm almost done.
Ramona Quimby: It's picture-perfect, right?
Beezus: Let's be realistic, Ramona. This is a curling iron, not a magic wand.
[She puts the curling iron down and holds up a mirror for Ramona to see what her new hairdo looks like]
Beezus: But, all things considered, I'd say you've never looked better.
Ramona Quimby: I love it! Thanks, Beezus!

Bob Quimby: So, Beezus, suppose I told you that when I pulled up by the house tonight I saw your old buddy Henry staring at it like he left something important inside of it.
Dorothy Quimby: Henry Huggins? I haven't heard that name in a while. Isn't he the boy that used to eat dirt in the backyard?
Bob Quimby: Yeah.
Beezus: He doesn't do that anymore!
Bob Quimby: Ooh, if I didn't know better, I'd say somebody's got a crush.
Beezus: Can we please talk about something else?
Dorothy Quimby: Well, there is that dance coming up. Maybe he wants to ask you to it.
Bob Quimby: Well, if he's gonna ask my daughter to dance, he better have some moves. Can the old dirt-eater do this?
[Mr. Quimby starts dancing very badly. Ramona and Mrs. Quimby laugh]
Beezus: [Embarrassed. Playfully throws a towel at Mr. Quimby] Oh, I hope not! Stop! Mom!

I loved this book as a kid. I think now reading it as an adult, this one feels more dated. I am not sure if kids relate as much to Beezus because she doesn't act like many of present-day eight or nine-year-olds (not sure what age she is). I think the emotions are still true and very important, just not always the thoughts and actions. Still worthwhile if you can keep your child's interest.

A lovely, uncomplicated book for Gr 1-4. It's very useful to be reminded that people used to live simpler lives. No en suite bath in the Quigley household, and no video games either. There's a strong message about the relationship between siblings which stands the test of time, and Beezus is an outstanding role model for older sisters everywhere.

"Beatrice Quimby's biggest problem was her little sister Ramona."[4] Beatrice, called Beezus for short, is a serious, responsible girl who wants to be good big sister. But sometimes it's just too hard. Four-year-old Ramona can be very exasperating. Sometimes she does silly things that embarrass Beezus, like walking to the library wearing Easter bunny ears and hopping like a rabbit—in September. Or getting their friend Henry Huggins' dog locked inside their bathroom when he comes over to play chequers with Beezus.
