Description

For nearly half a century, Amelia Bedelia has been turning ordinary tasks into extraordinary fun.

Amelia Bedelia draws the drapes with a pencil and sketchpad. She makes sponge cake with a real sponge.

She recruits a train conductor to lead an orchestra. And when she's driving toward a fork in the road, she's also on the lookout for a spoon.

You can count on the well-meaning Amelia Bedelia to take things to hilariously literal extremes. But you can also count on her putting her heart and friendship into everything she does--and always having a scrumptious cake or pie ready to share at the end of a long day.

This book includes four of Amelia Bedelia's most beloved adventures; a CD to listen to while you read; and recipes, games, and more.
