Beezus and Ramona!

Currently playing at a movie theater near you, this classic Beverly Cleary title opened on big screens around the country last Friday.  Based on the book "Beezus and Ramona," the film title was reversed to "Ramona and Beezus" due to the fact that Ramona plays such a central role.  It looks like a cute movie, and I know that I will be taking the daughter to see it at some point this summer.  I hope it is as wonderful as the books I remember reading!  Have you seen the movie?  What did you think?

By the way, did you know that Beezus and Ramona were first characters in books about Henry Huggins?  Cleary then started a series about the girls' family.  "Beezus and Ramona" was the first book, but Ramona became such a popular character that many of the remaining books are all about the feisty little sister.
