Happy Birthday Beverly Cleary (3 Days Late)

Beverly Cleary turned 90 on Wednesday.
Turning 90 is an accomplishment for anyone. Turing 90 and still being able to hold children enthrall is a major accomplishment.

Henry Huggins was published in 1950, her last book Ramona’s World appeared in 2001. Three generations of children have loved her books. Now there’s a legacy!

Oh how I remember her! Wonderful to know she is still kicking in a fruitful life.She was one of my alltime fab authors. I clearly remember the day I discobered her (yes that "1/2 w" key on my keyboard is broken, not my usual typos!) awww to the photo.

I love this picture, and I LOVE Ramona Quimby. Remember when she cracked the egg on her head? Hi-larious!
