Thank the stars that Amelia Bedelia knows how to cook, as that is how she gets herself out of many a jam! This collection of six Amelia Bedelia titles provides the listener frequent opportunities to chuckle over Amelia's literal interpretation of the English language. When Mrs. Rogers's instructions include dusting the furniture or pruning the bushes, that is exactly what happens. You can just imagine what she does when her baseball team tells her to "steal a base"! But there is always a confection, such as lemon meringue pie or cream puffs, to save the day. Suzanne Toren's narration echoes the incredulity and preposterousness that Amelia experiences as she reads and executes each task. Toren provides authority as the narrator and gives subtle personalities to each of the supporting characters--an indignant Mrs. Rogers; a forgiving Mr. Rogers; and enthusiastic ball players. Be ready to chuckle along with these time-tested favorite stories. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
