When Mrs. Rogers leaves Amelia Bedelia alone in the house on her first day of work, anything can happen. And it does! With a list of what is to be done before her, Amelia Bedelia sets about her duties. And no one could possibly accuse her of not following directions - for that is precisely what she does. But when Amelia Bedelia draws the drapes or dresses a chicken, the results are hilariously different than might be expected! Peggy Parish knows what strikes children as side-splittingly funny and Fritz Siebel has drawn Amelia Bedelia and her literal-minded actions to perfection. A hearty welcome to Amelia Bedelia - and long may she reign! This commemorative fiftieth anniversary edition features the jacket, artwork, and story from the original 1963 edition of Amelia Bedelia. Also included are seven additional pages of archival photographs, sketches, and anecdotes and recollections about the inception and creation of America's beloved literal-minded housekeeper, Amelia Bedelia!

My daughter received her first Amelia Bedelia book for Chirsmas when she was 5 years old and we were hooked! So funny to see Amelia Bedelia do what she does with the play on words that she uses.
