Weekend Round-Up Part Two

Bring on the cake
Sound the trumpets
Look whose going to be 100 this Tuesday.
Beverly Clearly
For decades this author has been bringing us endearing stories of Ramona Quimby, the strong-willed, lovable and exasperating star of “Ramona the Pest” and other books in the series. The first book, "Beezus and Ramona", appeared in 1955. The final book, "Ramona's World", was published in 1999.
It's hard to choose a favorite but I do have a soft spot in my heart for one of Cleary's other successful book series chronicling the adventures of Ralph S. Mouse. 
Be sure to read this wonderful interview with Cleary recently featured in the NY Times.
