Amelia Bedelia (50th Anniversary Edition)
Mr. & Mrs. Rogers just hired their new maid, Amelia Bedelia. They will soon learn Amelia takes tasks very literal and she’s the best at making lemon meringue pie. This fiftieth anniversary special edition of this classic story is now in hardback and features the artwork from the original 1963 edition. There are also seven additional pages of archival photographs, sketches, and anecdotes. This addendum material also includes recollections about the inception and creation of Amelia Bedelia.
Amelia Bedelia was first published in 1963. This special fiftieth anniversary edition of the very first book restores the original text, page design, jacket, and palette of the original volume. What else is the same? Well, the dressed chicken, dusted furniture, and that delicious lemon meringue pie, among other things. An additional eight pages of behind-the-scenes sketches, photographs, and information about the beginnings of this iconic character, the author, the artist, and Amelia Bedelia's exploits throughout the years is included.
