RIP Beverly Cleary

What a legacy she left to generations of kids.

Beverly Cleary, the American children’s author who created the feisty characters of Ramona Quimby and Henry Huggins, has died at the age of 104.

Cleary died on Thursday at her home in Carmel, California, publisher HarperCollins said in a statement.

At a time when children’s literature told the stories of genteel English schoolchildren, she wrote about what she called ordinary, “grubby kids”.
