Summary
The race is on!

Amelia Bedelia always does what she's told. So when Mr. Rogers tells her she should run for Mayor Thomas's office, she picks up her shirt, and dashes off to City Hall. She knows just what she'd do in the mayor's shoes (polish them, of course). With Amelis Bedelia in the race, politics will never be the same!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2^-3, younger for reading aloud. The nephew of the original Amelia Bedelia creator, Peggy Parish, continues his mission to keep the literal-minded housekeeper alive for today's children. In this, his third effort, Amelia Bedelia runs for the mayor's office (literally) after Mr. Rogers, her employer, complains that the mayor never does what he says he will do. This story offers more typical Amelia Bedelia fun as she throws her hat in the ring and promises to fill all the potholes, because, after all, you can't cook in pots with holes. After shaping up the mayor, Amelia Bedelia goes back to her zany life at the Rogers' house, but not without teaching kids something important about campaigning: mainly to listen to what people are really saying. As always, Lynn Sweat's energetic art suits nicely. Kathy Broderick"
