Heavy Ramona.

Believe you me, I wanted to love those statues as much as I love every Beverly Cleary book ever written. In defense of the sculptor, my expectations were sky high, and I’m sure it’s not easy to translate a whimsical, free-spirited girl into cast bronze. It’s still a very nice memorial to Portland’s most darling fictional child star, and the fact that Ramona Quimby has her own statue still makes me happy. But public art invites criticism!
