Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 03/01/2009 Gr 1–3— In her newest adventure, Amelia Bedelia volunteers to direct the third-grade Thanksgiving play, with the help of handyman Cousin Alcolu. The ditzy housekeeper manages to misinterpret every homonym and slip on every pun, creating a hilarious pageant that is wildly applauded by both children and adults. Parish ably continues his aunt's legacy by creating another comical chapter book for newly independent readers. Children will enjoy the silly mishaps and misunderstandings while reinforcing their ability to distinguish between same-sounding words that have different meanings. Sweat's ink and watercolor illustrations are light and airy, adding another layer of humor and familiarity to this latest escapade.—Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME - Copyright 2009 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
