Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Many middle school girls will identify with Amelia and the embarrassing moments that fill this next notebook in her ongoing series—everything from spilling milk, to being seen with mom inside school or seeing a teacher outside of school. The story line takes Amelia on an overnight science field trip with her class, prompting a whole new basket of worries. "Will I have to take showers with everyone else? Will kids make fun of my pajamas?" There are a few themes that may be typical but are unfortunate and probably should not get quite so much attention: Amelia's frequent put-downs of science, her dislike of her older sister Chloe who is a student aide on the field trip, and everyone making fun of Chloe's big nose. Relations with both Chloe and science are friendlier by the end of the book, which is written in Amelia's printed handwriting with her characteristic line drawings illustrating every page. The Amelia books reach girls at a vulnerable age and remind them in a humorous way that they are not alone with their fears and concerns and embarrassing moments. 2005, Simon & Schuster, Ages 9 to 13.
—Karen Leggett
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-When Amelia goes on a three-day field trip with her class, the possibilities for embarrassment loom large in her mind. Dressing in front of others and wearing the "wrong" kind of pajamas and slippers ("The combination you pick says a lot about who you are!") are just some of her concerns; never mind the presence of her older sister who is participating as a teaching aide ("I almost choked on my macaroni! Cleo working with my class? That's my worst nightmare!"). The format-hand-written journal entries on lined paper under topics such as "Amelia's Embarrassing Moments Hall of Fame" and "The Pajama Game"-allow the girl's perceptive voice to be heard, and since this is her story, she is the only developed character. Childlike cartoon drawings and many comedic captions extend the humor. Fortunately, Cleo encourages some group sharing of embarrassing moments and the ensuing revelations enable Amelia to realize that not only can she survive her humiliations, but that she also doesn't need to take responsibility for her sister's behavior. A multiethnic cast of characters helps promote the realization that all children suffer from similar concerns and doubts. Another winner in an already popular series.-Kirsten Cutler, Sonoma Library, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
