Amelia Bedelia's Masterpiece.pdf
For a gal who's 44 years old, Amelia's looking pret-ty darn good! In fact, she hasn't aged a bit, thanks to Sweat's watercolor-and-pen drawings of the lovable housekeeper in her familiar hat, apron, and striped dress. The first Amelia book was published in 1963 as a 32-page "reader" that later became an I Can Read book. Now, 20 books later, her high jinks and wordplay have extended to 64 pages with more story and fewerbut more involvedmalaprops. Her visit to an art museum is framed with surprises as she accidentally foils a forgery attempt and catches the thief. A bust of a Roman (roamin') man, a realistic art installation, and figure paintings provide targets for cleaning, chuckles, and misinterpretations. The pagination cleverly puts the numbers on small paint tubes. Amelia's longevity is testimony to her popularity. You go, girl! Cummins, Julie
Herman Parish was in the fourth grade when his aunt, Peggy Parish, wrote the first book about Amelia Bedelia. Since then, the lovable housekeeper has become a favorite household character for readers young and old. After Peggy Parish died in 1988, her nephew continued Amelia Bedelia's exploits in Good Driving, Amelia Bedelia; Bravo, Amelia Bedelia!; Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor; Calling Doctor Amelia Bedelia; Amelia Bedelia, Bookworm; Happy Haunting, Amelia Bedelia; Amelia Bedelia, Rocket Scientist?; Amelia Bedelia Under Construction; and Amelia Bedelia's Masterpiece.
When Amelia Bedelia goes to the art museum, she meets Art, helps Drew draw, and busts a bust. She also foils a theft, bakes a cake, and saves the day. Is there anything Amelia Bedelia can't do?
