Author: Herman Parish
Illustrator: Lynne Avril
Main Character: Amelia Bedelia
Amelia Bedelia needs to find a way to make money to buy a new bike like Suzi’s.
She gets a job as a waitress, opens a lemonade stand, and sells tarts.
Finally, Amelia Bedelia enters into a contest to try and win a new bike.
My favorite part of the story: Is how Amelia gets confused when grown ups say things like, “the bike will cost an arm and a leg.” She thinks that she really has to give somebody her arm and leg just to have a bike.
Why I like this book: I like this because Amelia Bedelia is very funny, even when she isn’t trying to be. I also like the illustrations and seeing Amelia Bedelia as a kid, not an adult.
My rating: 5
Reading difficulty: Easy for me
