From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3?Herman Parish, the nephew of Peggy Parish, admirably carries the torch in the continuation of this well-loved series. When Mrs. Rogers asks her very literal maid to go to the train station to pick up the conductor for the school concert, Amelia Bedelia returns with the train conductor. And so begins another story of misunderstandings, this time set within the musical world of a school concert. When a bee is busily buzzing around Amelia Bedelia, she flattens it with a pair of cymbals, disrupting the orchestra and further provoking the already irate conductor. "Would you call that B-flat?" he asks. "Absolutely," says Amelia Bedelia. "A bee couldn't get any flatter." Sweat's clear cartoon illustrations work well with the text and reflect today's multicultural awareness with the inclusion of various ethnic groups. Amelia Bedelia devotees will not be disappointed by her latest wacky adventure.?Amelia Kalin, Valley Cottage Library, NY

Gr. 1^-3. Amelia Bedelia is supposed to assist at the school concert, but instead she turns the performance into a topsy-turvy event. In her usual zany fashion, Amelia Bedelia takes her orders literally and hilariously jumbles up everything she is asked to do. The situation gets off to a comical start when she goes to the train station to pick up the orchestra conductor but returns with the train conductor. Humorous misunderstandings abound in this early chapter book that will tickle the funny bones of young readers. Written by the nephew of Amelia Bedelia's originator and illustrated with pictures by the original series artist, this newest story about the ever-popular maid will be welcomed by fans old and new.
