Review by Booklist Review

Ages 5-8. Amelia Bedelia, the literal-minded maid who has been delighting children for 25 years, follows instructions to the letter. She can't understand why Mrs. Rodgers wants her to dress the chicken or draw the drapes, but she obliges.

Review by School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3‘The hilarious antics of a housekeeper whose literal interpretations of her list of chores lead to some extremely funny messes. The translator maintains the humor and the plays on words found in the original English text, thus making this Spanish rendition free flowing and amusing. It is worth mentioning that the simple narrative is accessible to beginning readers. The brightly colored cartoon artwork is integral to the presentation, as many of the jokes are played out in the pictures. Fun fare.‘Ruth Dlugos, NYPL (c) Copyright 2010.
