Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5. Amelia creates a travel notebook about a family car trip back to California to see Nadia, her best friend since kindergarten, stopping at the Grand Canyon and Yosemite on the way. Amid complaints about big sister, Cleo, Amelia ponders how much her friend has changed in the last year by drawing one picture of Nadia as she remembers her, and one picture of a bald Nadia, labeled with handwritten questions regarding her current hair length. As in the previous books about Amelia, the adorable diagrams that illustrate the child's witty observations will be pored over by readers. The diapers she draws for a mule as a means of keeping the Grand Canyon trails clean are a riot. Her descriptions of the scenery create a sense of being there. When the family stops at the site of Manzanar, the girl draws a barbed-wire fence with a speech bubble saying simply, "I'm mad." The story climaxes with the long-awaited reunion with Nadia. Sweet reminiscences of Amelia's Notebook (Tricycle, 1995) show the girls wearing matching friendship necklaces and doing the experiments from a science kit Nadia promised to save until Amelia's first visit. This book will delight long-time fans and draw new ones. Once again, Moss proves that journal writing is great fun.?Jackie Hechtkopf, Talent House School, Fairfax,

When I read this book, I felt I was really reading a notebook written by a ten-year-old girl. I can relate to her because we both have a pesky sibling who gets motion sickness! The illustrations were great. I liked all the little side notes that went along with the pictures. It is probably my all-time favorite book. Keep 'em coming, Ms. Moss!

Amelia and her sister Cleo and mom are on a road trip in theWest. Amelia and Cleo see the Yosimite, the Painted Desert and thedifferent towns. I like the colorful illustrations and the "useful information" in the back of her notebook. I also like the jokes Amelia makes about her sister Cleo.

This book is a terrific one. It is an exciting story of Amelia on the road to Nadia's house. She makes lots of exciting stops on the way - like Death Valley! I definitely recommend this book!
