Amelia Bedelia - 50th Anniversary Edition
By Peggy Parish, Author & Fritz Siebel, Illustrator. Amelia Bedelia, America’s favorite literal-minded housekeeper, is turning fifty!

Well, the dressed chicken, dusted furniture, and that delicious lemon meringue pie, among other things. An additional eight pages of behind-the-scenes information about the beginnings of this iconic character, the author, the artist, and Amelia Bedelia’s exploits throughout the years is included. For ages 4 and up.
