Among all of Cleary's books, this one may be the most dear. The mischievous titular protagonist is surely the author's most beloved character, and she serves as a vessel for Cleary's uncanny …

I'm not up on the latest in fiction for the pre-teen/teenaged crowd... have a vague sense that wizards and vampires rule the space, but that's about it. When I was offered a free copy of Curse …
