Miss Binney, who could understand that Santa Claus in the chimney would make a fireplace smoke, might be disappointed if she knew Ramona had given her Q ears and whiskers, because lettering was different from drawing pictures.

Ramona loved Miss Binney so much that she did not want to disappoint her. Not ever. Miss Binney was the nicest teacher in the whole world.

Looks like I never posted my Ladies of Literature: Vol 2 piece in it’s entirety! Beverly Cleary’s books were my favorites as a kid, especially the Ramona series. This scene is from the second book, Ramona the Pest.

Some of these are so remarkable. From top to bottom: Peter Pan, Jack Kerouac, Alice in Wonderland, Catcher in the Rye, The Tempest, Ramona Quimby, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, Nancy Drew, Madeline

That post about how blue eyes are always compared to the ocean or the sky reminded me of how in one of the Ramona Quimby books she compared Willa Jean’s eyes to the “blue plastic handle of her toothbrush” anyone who ever doubted that Beverly Cleary is the actual best can go home.
