Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Moss (Mel's Diner) designs this upbeat, first-person story to resemble a real diary; the cover bears the familiar black-and-white abstract design of a composition book, decorated with color cartoons by Amelia, the book's nine-year-old ``author.'' Inside, on lined pages, Amelia writes about her recent move to a new town, doodles pictures of people she meets and saves such mementos as postage stamps and a birthday candle. She misses her best friend, Nadia, but her moments of sadness are balanced by optimism-she distracts herself by drawing and by writing short stories. In appropriately conversational terms, Amelia complains that her big sister invades her privacy (``So Cleo if you are reading this right now-BUG OFF and STAY OUT''); gripes about cafeteria food (``Henna says they use dog food. I believe it!''); and jokes in classic elementary-school gross-out fashion. Readers will understand Amelia's wish to put her ``top secret'' thoughts on paper, and they'll notice that even though she's uneasy about attending a different school, she's starting over successfully. An on-target presentation. Ages 7-up. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Amelia's Notebook employs the format of the old black and white bound notebook that everyone has used at one time or another in elementary school. It is the story of a young girl and her first attempt at keeping a journal. Given to her by her mother on their arrival in a new town, Amelia proceeds to record every feeling and event of her daily life as well as using her notebook as a doodling pad and scrapbook. Amelia has created a wonderful memory of her life that is fun to share. Her efforts will inspire students who are having a difficult time beginning a journal of their own, whether at home or school. It's a nice resource for the classroom.
Stephanie Zvirin
Moss may have her name on the title page, but this is really Amelia's book. The feisty, make-believe nine-year-old takes on a life of her own as she writes and draws her feelings about moving, starting a new school, and making new friends (some antagonism toward her older sister, Cleo, who "picks her nose with her little finger," sneaks in as well). A colorful riot of childlike drawings and lots of hand-printed text spill every which way across the pages. Both the language and the art style are on target for the age group--Amelia is droll and funny and not too sophisticated for her years; she's also poignant and real as she longs for her "far-away" friend and takes tentative steps to find one close by.

    I Love This Book!

    Amelia's Notebook is the first book in the entire Amelia series. I love the first one out of all the others! I love Amelia's life and I love how she loves to write and draw which is great! I also love her and Cleo's relationship, they're both a pain to each other but they love each other! Amelia moves away from her best friend which is hard because that's what I had to do (but we still go to the same school.) Enough of me, Anyways, Fantastic Read! I really Highly Recommend this book if you're looking for a book full of laughs and pictures!

    Outstanding book for children

    I read these books when I was younger and absolutley adored them. I had my parents buy me the whole series and I just wish the writer would continue this series. These books help children to develope their writing skills. This is what sparked my interest in reading and writing. (I began my own notebook). And I am now buying them for my niece(s). I hope it will do the same for your own children

    I Love The Amelia Books!!!

    The Amelia books are the best! I love to read them, but when my mom saw me check out the first one out of the library, she just HAD to go and look to see if it was "appropriate for a ten year old girl", and now, my mom thinks that these books are "too rude and unoriginal" (just because of the front cover and the first page!) I've been reading them anyway ( at school, at friend's houses,and in the library), and I just love them!! All girls would love to read them!

    Very Funny!

    I think this book was very funny. I think this because of the nose page. Amelia drew 15 different noses and named them.If you have an older sister, you would crack up about Cleo, Amelia's older sister.
