Summary/Review:

In the second book of the Ramona series, Ramona begins kindergarten with much excitement, and while she’s eager to learn to read and write and loves her teacher, trouble follows her everywhere.  Among her problems are being to told to sit in a seat “for the present” and expecting a gift, the temptation to pull the springy curls on her classmates head, declaring herself on Halloween to be “the baddest witch” and managing to frighten herself, and becoming a kindergarten drop out.  Ramona feels ever so true to life with her kid logic and motivations and the book is laugh-out-loud funny.
