Amelia Bedelia makes her chapter book debut! In Amelia Bedelia Means Business, a New York Times bestseller and the first book in the new chapter book series, young Amelia Bedelia will do almost anything for a shiny new bicycle.
Amelia Bedelia's parents say they'll split the cost of a new bike with her, and that means Amelia Bedelia needs to put the pedal to the metal and earn some dough! With Amelia Bedelia anything can happen, and it usually does. Short, fast-paced chapters, tons of friends, silly situations, and funny wordplay and misunderstandings make the Amelia Bedelia chapter books an ideal choice for readers of the Ivy and Bean, Magic Tree House, and Judy Moody books. Features black-and-white pictures by Lynne Avril on every page!
Look out! Here comes Amelia Bedelia, and she means business! "Sure to be favorites on the early chapter-book shelves."—School Library Journal
Supports the Common Core State Standards
Amelia Bedelia fans will welcome her bumbling leap (in a good way) into a new chapter-book series. Although the character turns 50 in 2013, this book follows the literal-minded heroine's exploits and misunderstandings as a pigtailed girl. When Amelia's mother remarks that the fancy bike that her daughter covets must cost an arm and a leg, Amelia replies that she'd never pay that much. "You need both your arms to steer a bike like that, and both legs to pedal it." Her parents' offer to split the cost of a bike with her leads to a short-lived job at a diner; a customer who's in a rush orders pie, telling her to "step on it" no surprise what happens next. Amelia's second job ends equally disastrously after she opens a lemonade stand at a car dealership, with a sign that advertises "Lots of Lemons!" Parish and Avril bring this zingy novel to a conclusion that is chaotic, even by Amelia Bedelia's standards, proving that her legacy is in capable hands. Available simultaneously: Amelia Bedelia Unleashed. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 7 10.

Amelia Bedelia Means Business
I think this book was very exciting. I liked the part when Amelia was being literal with the costumer. Who ever made this book did a spectacular job.
