Summary

With Amelia Bedelia, anything can happen!

Amelia Bedelia wants a new bike--a shiny, fast one just like Suzanne's. Amelia Bedelia's mom says that a bike like that is expensive and will cost an arm and a leg. Amelia Bedelia can't give away one of her arms and one of her legs! She needs both arms to steer, and both legs to pedal. What Amelia Bedelia needs is a job.

Look out! Here comes Amelia Bedelia, and she means business!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Incorporating wordplay, puns, and humor, the first title in the new Amelia Bedelia Chapter Books series brings Peggy Parish's classic character, here school-age, to a slightly older audience courtesy of her nephew, Herman Parish. After seeing snarky classmate Kaite-Lynne's fancy new bike, Amelia Bedelia wants one, too, but earning money isn't easy. An apprentice-waitressing opportunity goes awry when a hurried customer requests, Bring me a piece of pie and step on it! and well-meaning but ever-literal-minded Amelia Bedelia does both, with messy results. Her lemonade stand's locale and festive sign (Lots of Lemons) garners attention, but it's not the kind of publicity a used-car-lot owner appreciates. But, ultimately, and happily, there are silver linings, too. With the spirit and flair that epitomized the original character, Amelia Bedelia's an earnest, appealing protagonist whose interpretations and inadvertent misinterpretations often lead to a great hullabaloo. Although the wordplay is occasionally challenging (e.g. like understanding lemon in reference to a car, or the idiom Cut the mustard) this is an enjoyable, entertaining read. Final illustrations not seen.--Rosenfeld, Shelle Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Amelia Bedelia fans will welcome her bumbling leap (in a good way) into a new chapter-book series. Although the character turns 50 in 2013, this book follows the literal-minded heroine's exploits and misunderstandings as a pigtailed girl. When Amelia's mother remarks that the fancy bike that her daughter covets must cost an arm and a leg, Amelia replies that she'd never pay that much. "You need both your arms to steer a bike like that, and both legs to pedal it." Her parents' offer to split the cost of a bike with her leads to a short-lived job at a diner; a customer who's in a rush orders pie, telling her to "step on it"-no surprise what happens next. Amelia's second job ends equally disastrously after she opens a lemonade stand at a car dealership, with a sign that advertises "Lots of Lemons!" Parish and Avril bring this zingy novel to a conclusion that is chaotic, even by Amelia Bedelia's standards, proving that her legacy is in capable hands. Available simultaneously: Amelia Bedelia Unleashed. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 7-10. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
