Amelia Bedelia was first published in 1963. This special fiftieth anniversary edition of the very first book restores the original text, page design, jacket, and palette of the original volume. What else is the same? Well, the dressed chicken, dusted furniture, and that delicious lemon meringue pie, among other things. An additional eight pages of behind-the-scenes sketches, photographs, and information about the beginnings of this iconic character, the author, the artist, and Amelia Bedelia's exploits throughout the years is included.

"No child can resist Amelia [Bedelia] and her literal trips through the minefield of the English language—and no adult can fail to notice that she's usually right when she's wrong."—The New York Times Book Review

“Right on the button for juvenile humor! This book is for that stage in life when the acme of wit is considered to be a question like this—‘How can I sit UP when I’m siting DOWN?’ A perfect blend of text and pictures spiced with humor.”
