Editorial Reviews

Horn Book Magazine
“The younger children for whom this nonsense makes a good read-aloud, and those older who will find it easy to read, will giggle through its series of jokes.”
Saturday Review
“Amelia Bedelia, the new maid, slightly suggests the famous Mary Poppins, but she makes her entry discreetly through the doorway, on her two feet, instead of blowing in on the wind. Thisis purely a ‘silly’ book, with no lesson to impart, but it will seem hilarious to young children.”
K.
“Right on the button for juvenile humor! This book is for that stage in life when the acme of wit is considered to be a questions like this—‘How can I sit UP when I’m sitting DOWN?’ A perfect blend of text and pictures spiced with humor.”

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.
