The Adventures of Amelia Bedelia
(Barnes and Noble, March 15, 1992)
For over thirty years, young readers have been enjoying the antics of this very literal-minded but charming housekeeper. The Rogers family loves Amelia, but she causes enough confusion to keep the family running from one hilarious disaster to another. Here are three favorite Amelia Bedelia books together in one volume for hours of laughs. Meet the zany housekeeper in Amelia Bedelia. You'll be surprised to find out what "dust the furniture" and "dress a chicken" really mean! In Come Back, Amelia Bedelia, Amelia tries to find a new job after Mr. Rogers fires her. All's well that ends well, but the local beauty shop, dress shop, and doctor's office will never be the same again. When the Grizzlies baseball team is in trouble, it's Amelia to the rescue in Play Ball, Amelia Bedelia. But before she can help, Amelia has to learn that "tag a runner" doesn't mean putting a price tag on one of the players. New and old fans of Amelia Bedelia will love this hilarious collection of stories, and will want to read them again and again. Peggy Parish first introduced Amelia Bedelia more than thirty years ago, and today beginning readers are still clamoring for the stories about her silly and delightful antics.
