Kindergarten-Grade 3?Peggy Parish's nephew is the creator of this new adventure that will surely delight Amelia Bedelia's many fans. This time the housekeeper is practicing her driving, and whether she is looking for forks in the road or mixing up directions, she is as cheerfully literal-minded as ever. Full-color cartoons illustrate the easy-to-read text. A pleasant outing with a treasured old friend.?Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA

Gr. 1^-2. The nephew of Peggy Parish, who created Amelia Bedelia, continues the series about the lovable literalist. When Mr. Rogers takes Amelia Bedelia out to practice her driving, he soon finds that his directions lead to confusion: when he warns of "a fork in the road," she starts looking for cutlery rather than a cutoff. All ends well, though, with a birthday party for the daffy domestic. If the dialogue occasionally sounds like an old vaudeville routine, that's not likely to trouble anyone too young to have heard of vaudeville. Sweat, the series' familiar illustrator, once again offers line-and-watercolor wash illustrations that reflect the book's simplicity and good humor. An unexpected pleasure for insatiable fans of the series. Carolyn Phelan
