Descripción

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

Amelia Bedelia Chapter Book #1 - Herman Parish

Publisher

Amelia Bedelia never meant to lead a pack of dogs on a wild-goose chase. She never meant to steal something and then sell it. She never meant to make someone look bad (very bad) or lead a parade astray or even stomp on a piece of perfectly delicious cherry pie. But all that and more actually happened.

Amelia Bedelia needed to earn some money. The truth was, Amelia Bedelia needed to earn a lot of money. Maybe that was the real problem. Earning some money would have been easy.

Amelia Bedelia could have planted petunias for a neighbor or fed a cat while its owner was on vacation. But such small jobs would never have earned the wheelbarrows full of money Amelia Bedelia needed to make.

It all started innocently enough when Amelia Bedelia decided that she wanted a new bike. But then one thing led to another until the mayor of Amelia Bedelia’s town finally said, That Amelia Bedelia—she means business! Here’s what happened. . . .

Amelia Bedelia adored her bike. It was a great bike. It was fast and dependable and she had learned to ride on it. She could tell you how it had gotten every dent. She could tell you what had chipped each fragment of paint from the frame and what had made those rusty scratches on the chrome. She could match each insult to her bike to an injury on her body: scabs on her knees, scrapes to her elbows, bruises on her shins, and a tiny sliver of a scar under her chin.

Amelia Bedelia had parked her bike at the bike rack. She was about to go into school when she saw some kids buzzing around Suzanne Scroggins.

Suzanne was a new girl this year. She told all her friends to call her Suzi. Amelia Bedelia still called her Suzanne, even though Amelia Bedelia sat right behind her. Amelia Bedelia had never figured out why Suzanne was so crabby and bossy every day. Every day except for today, of course, since it was the last day of school before vacation.

Amelia Bedelia noticed the difference right away. Suzanne was smiling from ear to ear! Then Amelia Bedelia saw why. Suzanne had a new bike. It was THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BIKE IN THE WORLD. Amelia Bedelia was speechless, but she did make a sound. It was the takes-your-breath-away inhaling sound that you can’t control when you see something amazing.

T.H.E. BIKE was painted a rich emerald green, with metal flakes that sparkled like diamonds floating just beneath the smooth enamel surface. Gleaming chrome reflected the morning sun, dazzling Amelia Bedelia’s eyes. She tried to look away, but she could not take her eyes off the bike. It hurt to look. It hurt more not to look.

Every inch of the bike was so streamlined that it looked as though it was still moving, even after Suzanne had parked it.

From the back of her throat, Amelia Bedelia managed to croak, Nice bike.

Thank you, said Suzanne. But bikes are bikes.

That’s true, said Amelia Bedelia. Just two wheels with spokes.

And lots of gears, said Suzanne.

I don’t have any gears, said Amelia Bedelia.

Two tires, definitely, said Suzanne.

Not really, said Amelia Bedelia. I don’t get too tired without gears.

Brakes? said Suzanne.

Sometimes my bike breaks, said Amelia Bedelia. Then my dad fixes it.

The bell rang. It was time to go inside. As Suzanne locked her bike at the rack, she said, Don’t forget to lock up your bike, Amelia Bedelia. That’s when the truth hit Amelia

    Very funny, we almost cried in some parts! ? A great way to learn idioms.
  • (5/5)
    It was amazing and fun to read the whole story and read all about it.
  • (4/5)
    I absolutely loved this book! The illustrations were bright and colorful on the cover page including the new shiny bike that Ameila wants. The other illustrations throughout the story are in black and white. The writing is very humorous and keeps the reader engaged when reading. I used to read the shorter Amelia Bedelia books which I loved as a child, and found it funny when she misunderstood all of the sayings that she read. In this book, when the employee says that “it’s on the house”, Amelia really thinks that the item is on the house. The characters are well-developed and I think children can relate to Amelia when she asks her parents for a new bike. The big idea of this story is that if you put hard work into something, in the end you will most likely be satisfied!

    I enjoyed this book for many different reasons. I loved the characters in the book because I felt that they were well-developed. This book does not only focus on Amelia Bedelia's silly personally, but it also enhances the personalities of her parents, classmates, and neighbors. In order to earn money to buy her bike, Amelia helps Pete at his diner. Throughout this portion of the book, I felt like I knew Pete just as well as I knew Amelia. Developing many different characters is great for children because they are able to understand that all personalities are different and everyone brings something to the table. Additionally, I also enjoyed the illustrations throughout the book. For example, when Amelia decorates her bike as a "giant lemon tart," in attempts to attract customers, the illustrations portray her work. In the photo it shows that her tires look like "giant lemon slices," her back holds a sign demanding, "try a bite!" and on the top of her helmet is a "papier-måche lemon." This is just one example out of many that the illustrations throughout the book represent the plot of the story. Lastly, the humor throughout the story is hilarious. Amelia takes everything literally that her family and friends say; this creates a funny story for children to be constantly entertained. Overall, the message of this book is when life gives you lemons, make lemonade (literally AND figuratively).

    These chapter books are so much better than the picture books of the same name. Fun story lines. The literal Amelia Bedelia seems less forced in these chapter books. My daughter went on to read two more from the series after finishing this one.

    Young Amelia Bedelia is happy with her own bike until she sees her classmate Kaite-Lynne cruise up on a sparkling new, green model. From that moment, Amelia's heart is set on a shiny new bike, but her parents say they will only "meet her halfway"; she must earn half of the money for the bike on her own. Hilarity ensues as the little girl -- age about 8 -- tries her hand at different jobs. As a helper in a diner, she lasts less than a day. She opens a lemonade stand with a sign declaring "Lots of Lemons" next to a car lot. But like the grown-up Amelia in the original early-reader books, young Amelia Bedelia bakes a mean lemon tart, and people can forgive a lot when lemon tarts are on the table.

    Herman Parish, nephew of Peggy Parish (who created Amelia Bedelia), has taken over the reins of modernizing Amelia Bedelia into new chapter book format adventures. It was delightful to visit the still very literal young lady as she tries out jobs to help her pay for a new bicycle. This book is hilarious and completely ready to charm another generation of readers.
