From Our Editors

When Amelia Bedelia reports for her first day of work, Mr. and Mrs. Rogers can't be there to supervise, so they leave her a list of chores. The eager maid promises to do just what the list says ... and she means it! Amelia Bedelia takes things very literally: when asked to draw the drapes, she does a pretty good job with paper and pencil, despite a lack of artistic experience. When asked to dust the furniture, she sprinkles it with powder. When asked to dress the chicken for dinner, she makes it a pair of overalls. Amelia Bedelia's crazy interpretations infuriate Mrs. Rogers, but her job remains safe because she bakes a mean lemon meringue pie. A funny easy reader which will open discussion about the many double-meanings in the English language! Ages 6-8.

Editorial Reviews

“Amelia Bedelia, the new maid, slightly suggests the famous Mary Poppins, but she makes her entry discreetly through the doorway, on her two feet, instead of blowing in on the wind. Thisis purely a ‘silly’ book, with no lesson to impart, but it will seem hilarious to young children.”
