About the Author
Emily Bront? was an English novelist and poet, who, along with her sisters Charlotte and Anne, produced some of the most enduring works of the 19th century. Best known for her only novel, Wuthering Heights, Bront? published her works using the pen name Ellis Bell, a practice common for female writers at the time. Called the Sphynx of Literature, Bront? had no desire for fame and wrote only for her own satisfaction. She died of consumption in 1848 at the age of 30. Collectively, the Bront? sisters' novels are considered literary standards that continue to influence modern writers.

Generations of children have grown up with Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, Ralph Mouse, and all of their friends, families, and assorted pets. Beverly Cleary continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of children of all ages throughout the world.
