Product description


“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.” -- Kirkus Reviews

“Her ingenuous spirit will continue to capture hearts.” -- Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover

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!
