Amelia Bedelia and her friends are looking for a clubhouse when they happen upon the perfect spot—a giant oak tree in a vacant lot. With a bit of spit and polish, the friends fix the lot up. What happens, though, when the lot is put up for sale? With Amelia Bedelia, anything can happen—and it usually does. Short, fast-paced chapters, tons of friends and funny situations, and black-and-white illustrations by Lynne Avril on every page make the Amelia Bedelia chapter books an ideal choice for readers of the Ivy + Bean, Magic Tree House, and Judy Moody books.
Herman Parish was in the fourth grade when his aunt, Peggy Parish, wrote the first book about Amelia Bedelia, the literal-minded housekeeper. After Peggy passed away in 1988, Herman continued the classic character, writing about Amelia Bedelia in more than 30 new books. In addition to her exploits as a housekeeper, there are now stories about Amelia Bedelia as a young girl in picture books, beginning readers, and a new series of chapter books that have become national bestsellers.
