Who else but Amelia Bedelia could find a real cat on a day when it's "raining cats and dogs"? She names her new pet Tiger and goes off in search of everything she needs to make him comfortable and happy. She follows her nose to the fish market ("I follow my nose everywhere I go, unless I walk backward") and makes a litter box out of litter — the kind in the trash can on the corner. When a policeman asks her not to break any more laws, she tells him that she generally tries not to break things. Then Tiger gets into trouble, and Amelia Bedelia has to go out on a limb — literally — to save him!
For more than 40 years, 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 easy-to-read wordplay books ever!
