Review

“Right on the button for juvenile humor! This book is for that stage in life when the acme of wit is regarded as to be a questions like this—‘How can I sit UP when I’m sitting DOWN?’ A perfect blend of text and pictures spiced with humor.” (K.)

“The hilarious antics of a housekeeper whose literal interpretations of her list of chores lead to a couple extremely funny messes.” (School Library Journal)

“The new maid, Amelia Bedelia, used to be so eager to please that she followed her instructions to the letter with the type of silly results if you want to make kindergarten children giggle.” (Publishers Weekly)

“The younger children for whom this nonsense makes a good read-aloud, and those older who will find it easy to read, will giggle through its series of jokes.” (Horn Book Magazine)

“Amelia Bedelia, the new maid, fairly suggests the famous Mary Poppins, but she makes her entry discreetly through the doorway, on her two feet, instead of blowing in on the wind. This is purely a ‘silly’ book, with no lesson to impart, but it’ll seem hilarious to young children.” (Saturday Review)
