About the Publisher

Amelia Bedelia had been looking forward to this moment all week long. She had finished her homework, made a yummy snack, poured a giant glass of apple juice, and arranged everything on the table next to her father’s favorite chair, a recliner covered in soft leather.

This was where he always sat to watch sports on TV and catch up on his sleep. Amelia Bedelia’s mother jokingly called the recliner his throne because he loved to sit there so much, like a king ruling the kingdom. Amelia Bedelia wouldn’t dare sit in her dad’s recliner if he were at home. Luckily, he was still at work!

Now, she climbed into it and got comfortable. The recliner actually lived up to its name. Amelia Bedelia thought that was probably why it was her favorite chair too. After all, the armchairs in her house did not have real arms. The footstool did not have any feet. The coffee table was not brown, and it had never made a pot of coffee. It just held magazines. But the recliner really reclined. When she pulled on the handle and snuggled back, a cushion popped up for her feet.

"Three, two, one—blastoff!" Amelia Bedelia pressed the ON button.

Her timing was perfect. Trumpets blared a fanfare as a deep-voiced announcer declared, "Welcome to this week’s episode of The World Is a Village."

    Consistence with other Amelia Bedelia books, this easy reader offers another mishap with Amelia that ends well. Amelia and her cousin are running a bakery for a friend for a day and they need to follow recipes and prepare baked goods. As usual, Amelia becomes confused and adheres to the instructions literally. Beginning readers will enjoy the outrages activities Amelia does, while being able to understand the language on their own. The hand-drawn illustrations will help readers understand the mistakes Amelia makes. Recommend ages 6-8.

    A fun story with wonderful plays on words that will both engage the early reader and lead to good discussions about how words change meaning depending on context.
