I read these to my kid when she was about 4 years old and I think they entertained me even more than my child.
Incredibly, the amazing Ms. Cleary will be 100 years old in about 6 more weeks.
I read, and loved, the “Ramona” books as a kid and distinctly remember Ramona and her father drawing a large mural of Portland one rainy day. Several years later I would realize Ramona lived in the same city that’s the setting for Hello Larry and Portlandia.

I love Portland, but it is going away bit by bit.
