Beverly Cleary has died at 104

Here's a link to one of the many news stories:

Wow, that's a good long life!

I remember reading her books when I was a kid in the 1970s.

I enjoyed a Ramona book. Maybe Ramona the pest.
Never saw or read them till I was an adult.

Cleary said in 2006. In one letter, a little girl said that reading in her room by herself was "like having a little television set in your head."
That's proper reading and books! My daughter once said, "The BGI in books is better than CGI in films."
"BGI?" I asked.
"Brain Graphics Interface.."

I've asked her did she write to Beverly Cleary.

Nothing wrong with Henry Huggins and Ramona (but while Ramona was funnier, my heart was with poor Beezus), but I was also a fan of her maltshop-style stories.

I didn't think I had read any of her books until I looked up her bibliography. I've read (and liked) at least one, The Mouse and the Motorcycle. I think someone gave it to my daughter when she was little. I probably liked it more than she did.

May Beverly Cleary rest in peace.

That's the one I've been trying to think of. I was conflating it with E.B. White's Stuart Little for some reason.

Wow, long life. Good for her. She's definitely a classic of children's books.

I barely remember the books, it's been so long, but I'm thinking I also preferred Beezus.
