Book Trailer: Ramona and Her Father

June 22nd, 2011 by

This book trailer for Ramona and Her Father was originally the Mystery Book Theater video for our Books About Dads theme. For more on Ramona and Her Father, check out our “Yo, Daddy-o!” podcast.

People say you have to suffer for fashion, but withstanding hair-pulling for hours? That’s just unnecessary… Unfortunately, that’s what happens to the heroine in Beverly Cleary’s Ramona and Her Father! After she wears a homemade crown of burs, it’s up to her dad to save the day.

PS – We’ve got a special guest actor for this video. Can you guess who it is? Here’s a hint: he recorded with us when he was in town for Father’s Day. Got an idea of his identity? Listen to our podcast to see if you’re right!
