In Newbery Medalist Cleary's seventh book about the Quimbys, eight-year-old Ramona and the whole family are caught up in momentous events. Beezus and Ramona share sorrows and help each other instead of tiffing when their dear cat dies. They worry about the consequences if their aunt marries a man they're not sure they like, about Mr. Quimby's new job taking them to a distant town. Most of all, Ramona wonders about her status when Mrs. Quimby has a new baby. PW correctly predicted that the ``gently humorous story, with Tiegreen's drawings emphasizing the main happenings,'' would be another of the author's bestsellers. (812) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
