Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Grade 3

The hilarious antics of a housekeeper whose literal interpretations of her list of chores lead to some extremely funny messes. The translator maintains the humor and the plays on words found in the original English text, thus making this Spanish rendition free flowing and amusing. It is worth mentioning that the simple narrative is accessible to beginning readers. The brightly colored cartoon artwork is integral to the presentation, as many of the jokes are played out in the pictures. Fun fare.
— Ruth Dlugos, New York Public Library

    Granddaughter loves it.

    My daughter had read these Amelia Bedelia books and now my granddaughter is. They are timeless, entertaining and fun. They encourage the old art of reading a book. Thank you.
