Happy Birthday

A Happy Birthday to the wonderful Ramona Cleary. Book^%$# rounds-up the articles, A Fuse No. 8 Productions links to the NPR piece, Jen Robinson and Roger Sutton offer their appreciations (and reactions to the D.E.A.R. initiative).

Beverly Cleary is a master writer of everyday life and from a child's perspective. And, I'll always love her for teaching me (though not always successfully) that just because you're a Beezus, doesn't mean you're always right. Often, you're just annoying.
