Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Amelia Bedelia needs little introduction, but suffice it to say that in this book, when told to make date cake, she cuts up a calendar and includes all the tiny squares in the recipe. It should be no surprise to her fans that when Amelia Bedelia is told to pop six cups of popcorn, she uses six cups of kernels and almost overflows the kitchen. Christmas here is merely an excuse for Amelia Bedelia's usual misunderstandings; however, children will love her endless antics. Ultimately, she manages to please Mrs. Rogers with fresh popcorn balls and Mr. Rogers with hot spice cake. Is there room for another book about the literal-minded maid? There's always room for another book about Amelia Bedeliashe hasn't lost her touch. (6-9)
Publishers Weekly
Christmas here is merely an excuse for the titular heroine's usual misunderstandings. When told to make date cake, she cuts up a calendar and includes all the tiny squares in the recipe. "Children will love her endless antics," noted PW. Ages 6-8. (Oct.)

My family grew up reading Amelia Bedelia books and now we are sharing them with our kids. I just love how hard my mom laughs when she reads any of her books it might have something to do with english being her second language. Buy it and you will know what i mean :) with Barnes n Noble shipping is alway on time or before the estimate time in my own experience love it!!!
