Amelia Bedelia Chapter Book #2: Amelia Bedelia Unleashed by Herman Parish

With Amelia Bedelia, anything can happen! Amelia Bedelia is going to get a puppy! When her parents ask her what kind of dog she'd like, Amelia Bedelia doesn't know what to say. There are hundreds of dogs in the world, maybe even millions! How will Amelia Bedelia ever find the perfect puppy? Look out! Here comes Amelia Bedelia, and she's got one thing on her mind-DOGS!


No child can resist Amelia [Bedelia] and her literal trips through the minefield of the English language-and no adult can fail to notice that she's usually right when she's wrong. -- New York Times Book Review Praise for the young Amelia Bedelia series: Parish has turned the clock back, making Amelia Bedelia young again and giving a new generation of readers the opportunity to enjoy her humor and self-confidence. -- Kirkus Reviews Her ingenuous spirit will continue to capture hearts. -- Publishers Weekly
