Reviews

"Amelia Bedelia, the new maid, slightly suggests the famous Mary Poppins, but she makes her entry discreetly through the doorway, on her two feet, instead of blowing in on the wind. This is purely a 'silly' book, with no lesson to impart, but it will seem hilarious to young children."--Saturday Review
"The younger children for whom this nonsense makes a good read-aloud, and those older who will find it easy to read, will giggle through its series of jokes."--The Horn Book
"Right on the button for juvenile humor! This book is for that stage in life when the acme of wit is considered to be a question like this--'How can I sit UP when I'm siting DOWN?' A perfect blend of text and pictures spiced with humor."--Kirkus Reviews
"The new maid, Amelia Bedelia, was so eager to please that she followed her instructions to the letter with the kind of silly results that will make kindergarten children giggle."--Publishers Weekly
