Play Ball, Amelia Bedelia

Play Ball, Amelia Bedelia

by Peggy Parish Illustrated by Wallace Tripp

The Grizzlies are one player short for their big game when who steps in but everyone's favorite house-keeper, Amelia Bedelia. Always cheerful, always literal-minded, Amelia Bedelia brings new meanings to tagging a player out and stealing bases, but her unorthodox plays may just save the day.

Recolored by the original illustrator, perennial favorite Amelia Bedelia is ready to play ball!
