Summary/Review:

Ramona is now in first grade, maturing away from being a “pest” but still finding trouble.  She also needs to conquer some fears.  After workmen cut a hole in the side of her house and build a new room, Ramona gets the reward of having her own room, but she also has to face the fear of falling asleep when she imagines a gorilla without bones may ooze into the room.  She also thinks that her teacher doesn’t like her, and she has to face down a mean dog with her shoe.  Another brilliant Ramona book from Cleary.
