If you read this book, you will grow to love the characters and setting that Beverly Cleary uses and also her style of writing.
This was a book that I took out of the library lots of times, and took three copies when they were discarding the old ones. Beverly Cleary’s series of related books are so great, they give you an excellent image on what’s happening. I recommend this book from when I was 6 years old.
