Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
“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.”
Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Amelia Bedelia is back with a fresh adventure. Like many youngsters, Amelia badly wants a pet dog. Her parents are willing to consider the request and suggest that she give some consideration into deciding what kind she would want. Amelia enlists the help of her friend Diane, a dogwalker, in gaining familiarity with a variety of breeds. At the park, she meets a boy named Charlie and his poodle, Pierre. Soon, she is helping him prepare the dog for a show. When a squirrel complicates their plan, Amelia comes up with a unique solution to their seemingly-impossible problem. Fans of Amelia Bedelia will appreciate typically zany wordplay. Here, a direction for Amelia to "remember the napkins" is met by a description of what they look like; a remark that some dogs are "pussy cats" leads to confusion; a suggestion about "dyeing" a dog's fur leads to consternation from Amelia, who believes she is "too young." This fun book is the second in the "Amelia Bedelia" chapter book series, penned by the nephew of character creator Peggy Parish. Amelia's fans will be waiting for the third in the series, Amelia Bedelia Road Trip. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
