Description

One day, out West at the Double B Ranch, a stranger appears . . . Amelia Bedelia!

Amelia Bedelia visits her uncle's dude ranch and makes herself at home on the range, getting all tied up (by her own lasso) and stopping a stampede (with only her own two hands)!

The West sure is wild when Amelia Bedelia comes to town!

Praise For Go West, Amelia Bedelia!

“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.”
