Amelia Bedelia Means Business (Paperback)
November 2012 Indie Next List
“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
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!
About the Author
Herman Parish was in the fourth grade when his aunt, Peggy Parish, wrote the first book about Amelia Bedelia. The author lives in Princeton, New Jersey.
Lynne Avril is the illustrator of more than fifty books for children, including a picture book series about Amelia Bedelia's childhood adventures. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
“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.”
-New York Times Book Review
Praise for the young Amelia Bedelia series:“Parish has turned the clock back, making Amelia Bedelia young again and giving a new generation of readers the opportunity to enjoy her humor and self-confidence.”
“Her ingenuous spirit will continue to capture hearts.”
