Ramona and Beezus are coming to the big screen!

A little sister goes a long way. We'll find out this summer when Beverly Cleary's Ramona comes to the big screen in Ramona and Beezus!

The movie, due out July 23, 2010, is written by Laurie Craig and Nick Putsay. It stars acting-newcomer Joey King (as Ramona Quimby), Selna Gomez (as her big sister Beezus), Ginnifer Goodwin (as Aunt Bea), Sandra Oh (as Mrs. Meacham), and several others!

"Ramona’s vivid imagination, boundless energy, and accident-prone antics keep everyone she meets on their toes. But her irrepressible sense of fun, adventure and mischief come in handy when she puts her mind to helping save her family’s home" (
Walden Media).
