Aiding and abetting, obstruction of justice - I am not sure what the correct term is for the extremely cringe-worthy moment when Amelia tells an art thief "I believe in you!!!" followed closely by her helping the thief to evade the authorities and escape. What... just what????
I was really hoping for a cute, 10 minute bed times story, not a meandering 30 minute travesty plus a 15 minute conversation on why we have a legal system in place.
At the gift shop, Amelia Bedelia purchases a genuine reproduction of a bust (a sculpture of the head, shoulders and chest) that looks just like Cousin Alcolu. She heads off to explore the museum and immediately comes across the real bust of Cousin Alcolu. Noticing that the bust she bought (which she refers to as a "real fake") is in better shape than the original one, Amelia Bedelia swaps the busts. She places the "worth less" one on the pedestal and puts the "price less" one in her bag so she can take it home and clean it up.
It looks like Amelia Bedelia hasn't made such a wise decision, right? Little does our literal-minded housekeeper know that this one action will have serious consequences for herself, Mrs. Rogers, Art and the museum. Will her entire visit be a bust?
Amelia Bedelia's Masterpiece is filled with glorious illustrations that move the story along and underscore the meaning of the word play.
