Beverly Cleary
Beverly Cleary is an American author of children’s books. She writes the Henry Huggins and Ramona Quimby series. Cleary lived on a farm in Yamhill, Oregon; a town that didn’t even have a library. Despite this, Beverly loved to read, and her mother had the Oregon State Library send books to Yamhill. Soon, her family would move to Portland, where she went to school. Beverly’s first full-time job was as a librarian in Yakima, Washington where she observed children looking for the same kind of books she had looked for herself at their age – books about children themselves. She began writing books for children in order to give young readers something to relate to.

Beverly Cleary’s first book was Henry Huggins, published in 1950. Beverly has won numerous book awards and honours in her career, including the National Book Award, the Newbery Medal and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award.
