“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!”

Description


With Amelia Bedelia, anything can happen!

Amelia Bedelia wants a new bike—a shiny, fast one just like Suzanne's. Amelia Bedelia's mom says that a bike like that is expensive and will cost an arm and a leg. Amelia Bedelia can't give away one of her arms and one of her legs! She needs both arms to steer, and both legs to pedal. What Amelia Bedelia needs is a job.

Look out! Here comes Amelia Bedelia, and she means business!
