“Hooray for Amelia Bedelia! Readers know her as an adult, who brings her own unique brand of lunacy to life with her literal interpretation of, well, everything. But where did that start? Was she always like that, even as a child? Thanks to this new series of Amelia Bedelia chapter books, we now have the answer ' yes! These books are well-developed and well-paced for young readers, and there are some cute illustrations sprinkled throughout. I look forward to continuing to enjoy Amelia Bedelia for years to come!”
-- Julie A. Baker, Eight Cousins, Falmouth, MA
