Beezus goes to the movies

Guess what? Beverly Cleary is still alive, writing, and in fact has her first movie deal.
The film is based on the fourth book in the Ramona series, "Ramona and Her Father," in which Ramona is in the second grade and her father loses his job. [...] "Ramona was originally an accidental character I added to the Henry Huggins books because I noticed that none of the characters had siblings," says Cleary, as she tucked a lock of silver hair behind her ear. "I added Ramona as Beazus' pestering little sister."
Needless to say, this will be a big event around the Gaughan household. P.J. says straight-up that he likes Henry Huggins even better than the Narnia books, and that's saying quite a lot.
