I liked Amelia Bedelia and the Surprise Shower because Peggy Parish is such a funny author. One time, Amelia Bedelia made sponge cake out of REAL (and I mean REAL) sponge. I had a really good image in my mind. Amelia Bedelia reminds me of Grandpa. (In Grandpa Comes to Visit by Rob Lewis.) He does everything wrong too. Once Grandpa made a discusting omelet with French fries in it. I wouldn’t want Amelia Bedelia as my maid because she does everything wrong, so your house would never get cleaned.
Have you ever met someone who does the opposite of whatever his or her bosses tells them to do? Amelia Bedelia does everything wrong but she thinks she is doing a great job. Amelia Bedelia doesn’t get the expressions that her bosses put in the lists of things she has to do. I recommend this book to people who like funny characters that don’t understand anything. If you like the story “Grandpa at the Beach” and/or “Grandpa Comes to Visit” then you’ll definitely like the series Amelia Bedelia!
