Ramona Quimby is excited when she goes to her first day of kindergarten, where she soon pulls Susan Kushner's long curls and is punished. An exchange of dolls and rabbits ensues at show-and-tell between Ramona and Howie Kemp.
Ramona then develops a crush on Davy and longs to kiss him. Ramona begins to chase him around the playground every day. She finds a worm and wraps it around her finger acting like it is an engagement ring, and decides to marry Henry Huggins, but at Halloween, dressed as a witch, she kisses Davy (through her mask). More drama and curl pulling follows.
