Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 09/01/2003 Gr 1-3-The literal-minded maid returns to create another ruckus. The author hauls out every corny pun and conceivable stereotype about books and libraries to introduce beginning readers to the joys of reading. Much of the wordplay is explained through the colorful illustrations. The book is, however, more of a string of events designed to include book-related puns than a cohesive story, and it's wordier than previous books in the series. Fans may welcome a new Amelia Bedelia title, but this one definitely doesn't live up to Peggy Parish's originals.-Nancy A.

Booklist - 11/01/2003 A worthy addition to the Amelia Bedelia series, 40 years after the first adventure debuted, this latest escapade is set in motion when Amelia returns some books to the library. Mrs. Page, the librarian, needs new book jackets, so Amelia, naturally, obliges and fashions some cute little coats, complete with sleeves and buttons, for the books. From there, the queen of literal mindedness creates a clamor for bookmarks, makes a pen drop, and even drives off with the library's bookmobile. Parish fashions an enjoyable set of misunderstandings with a happy ending true to his aunt's formula (the head librarian laughs at being called a know-it-all and announces a parade), while Sweat's cartoony, watercolor-and-pen illustrations are in tune with the zaniness of previous Amelia Bedelia adventures. A fun visit to a familiar place, this is also a good introduction to such familiar phrases as devouring a book, judging a book by its cover, and going by the book (or as Amelia would hear it, Go buy the book). - Copyright 2003 Booklist.
