Beverly Cleary's beloved Ramona Quimby stories have sold over 50 million copies — and her adventures have been brought to life by five different artists: Louis Darling, Alan Tiegreen, Joanne Scribner, Tracy Dockray, and Jacqueline Rogers. In honor of the 65th anniversary of Ramona's first appearance, this book celebrates these artists and their contributions to introducing generations of young readers to the inimitable Ramona!
In this book, readers can compare multiple interpretations of some of Ramona's iconic scenes; read letters between the original illustrator and Cleary; and learn the stories behind the illustrations. Two essays talk about the series and its impact on kids and culture. For fans of illustration and design, and for those who grew up alongside Ramona, this richly nostalgic volume reminds us why we fell in love with these books.
