When Mrs. Rogers leaves Amelia Bedelia alone in the house on her
first day of work, anything can happen. And it does!
With a list of what is to be done before her, Amelia Bedelia
sets about her duties. And no one could possibly accuse her of not
following directions-for that is precisely what she does. But when
Amelia Bedelia draws the drapes or dresses a chicken, the results
are hilariously different than might be expected!
Peggy Parish knows what strikes children as side-splittingly
funny and Fritz Siebel has drawn Amelia Bedelia and her
literal-minded actions to perfection. A hearty welcome to Amelia
Bedelia-and long may she reign!
This commemorative fiftieth anniversary edition features the
jacket, artwork, and story from the original 1963 edition of Amelia
Bedelia. Also included are seven additional pages of archival
photographs, sketches, and anecdotes and recollections about the
inception and creation of America''s beloved literal-minded
housekeeper, Amelia Bedelia!
