Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
Mr. Rogers, Amelia's neighbor, urges her to enter a local baking contest sponsored by a famous television chef. Amelia is interested but she has to decline. Grace, who runs a bakery called "Grace's Cookie Jar," is taking the day off, and she has asked Amelia and her cousin Alcolu to run the bakery for her. Amelia is afraid that she will be too tired at the end of the day to make a cake for the contest, and she is right. Amelia and Alcolu work hard at the bakery and manage to come up with a strange assortment of desserts which includes cookies with the chocolate chips cut in half, twelve pound cakes stacked on top of one another, and a crumb cake made of nothing but crumbs. Finally, there is one last cake to be made, but Amelia is so tired she decides to bake it at home. Grace tells her to meet her, with the cake, at the big Bake-Off the next day. When the chef sees Amelia's cake, he awards her the grand prize. This is another installment of the "Amelia Bedelia" series, first created by Peggy Parish and now carried on by her nephew, Herman Parish. Fans of the series won't be disappointed in this new book, which is full of delightful word puns and plays, and, of course, its trademark humor. A special feature is a recipe for "Amelia Bedelia's Sheet Cake," contained at the back. This is a book that really takes the cake—and enables children and their parents to make it and eat it, too. Reviewer: Leona Illig
School Library Journal
Gr 1–3—Kids love feeling superior to adults, hence the perennial appeal of the stories about the cheerful but hapless maid who takes figures of speech literally. In this book, her employer urges her to enter her recipe into a bake-off contest. Before long, she's trying to make a crumb cake (out of crumbs, of course) and taking the advice to start every recipe "from scratch." But in the end she always comes out on top. Parish, the original author's nephew, has been writing these books for 15 years, and the formula is reliable if a bit tired by now. Sweat's sketchy cartoons add a lively touch. Overall, fans of the series are sure to eat this up.—Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
