Republication of this classic title, featuring new art and cover, celebrates the August 1999 release of the first Ramona book in 15 years, Ramona's World. Ramona likes to think she's a fearless first-grader, but her bravery is put to the test at every turn.
From the Back Cover
Being brave is a full-time job. Ramona is happy to have a new bedroom all to herself--during the day, at least. It's not as easy to be brave when there might be ghostly, boneless gorillas oozing under the door at night. Then there is the big, mean dog that steals Ramona's shoe on her way to school. Any other first grader might be frightened. But it's going to take more than monsters and dogs to scare Ramona!
