Summary

Summary

When Amelia Bedelia is put in charge of the school Thanksgiving pageant, things are bound to get a little mixed up. After all, she thinks roles are a type of bread, the dressing room is where the turkey's stuffing goes, and that a cast party happens after you've followed a well-wisher's command to "break a leg!" Will Amelia Bedelia bring the house down . . . literally?

Let's all give thanks for another hilarious Amelia Bedelia episode!

School Library Journal Review

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 (c) Copyright 2010.
