About This Book
Who Could Be More Mixed-Up Than Amelia? Her Family, of Course!
Meet Amelia Bedelia's entire family in this silly story full of witty wordplay and humorous illustrations!
Mr. and Mrs. Rogers love Amelia Bedelia so much they want to throw her a party and meet her family. While the three pore over Amelia's family album, Amelia tells the Rogers about each of her relatives: Her mother is a loafer (she bakes bread), her cousin is a boxer (he makes boxes), her aunt is a bank teller (she tells everyone in the bank where to go). The Rogers listen attentively and tell Amelia to invite everybody. But Amelia misinterprets the word "everybody," and the Rogers are in for more guests than they expected!
Since 1963, Amelia Bedelia has delighted children, parents, and teachers with her habit of taking everything literally, whether she's drawing the drapes (with a crayon) or dressing the chicken (in clothes). These are the funniest wordplay books ever!
