Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this Harper Trophy edition of the 1995 collaboration between Herman Parish and Lynn Sweat, Amelia Bedelia takes to the road for a birthday drive in the country. Literal-minded as always, she steers straight ahead when Mr. Rogers warns her that there is a "steer straight ahead," pushes on the cow's horn instead of the car's horn when Mr. Rogers tells her to "Push on the horn," comes back with an armful of directional signs when Mr. Rogers sends her off on a walk to "get some directions," is puzzled when Mr. Rogers points out a fork in the road ("I don't see any forks or spoons"), does not bear left when she is told to, for fear of a bear on her left, and finds a Jack rather than a jack to help with the subsequent wreckage. But then Mr. Rogers and Amelia get a tow home (despite Amelia's protesting that she has all the toes she needs) in time for Amelia Bedelia's birthday party. As enjoyable a linguistic romp as all the other titles in this enduringly popular series. 2002 (orig. 1995), HarperTrophy,

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3Peggy Parish's nephew is the creator of this new adventure that will surely delight Amelia Bedelia's many fans. This time the housekeeper is practicing her driving, and whether she is looking for forks in the road or mixing up directions, she is as cheerfully literal-minded as ever. Full-color cartoons illustrate the easy-to-read text. A pleasant outing with a treasured old friend.Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
