Kindergarten-Grade 3-The beloved Amelia Bedelia is back, this time as a helper in the school science fair. Naturally, the literal-minded housekeeper runs into all sorts of misunderstandings, from insisting children are way too young for "makeup" tests, to wondering why Dr. Dinglebatt, the judge, is a mad scientist. Havoc breaks loose when Amelia Bedelia adds too much baking soda to a volcano model, and when the professor's hairpiece falls on a computer, a child screeches, "A rat is attacking the mouse!" As per formula, all ends happily with food and smiles while everyone eats the maid's famous lemon meringue pie. Sweat's familiar watercolor-and-ink illustrations are helpful in understanding the wordplay.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX

K-Gr. 2. When Amelia Bedelia volunteers to help at a school science fair, she soon becomes the center of chaos. Children willing to suspend disbelief during the episodic story will be rewarded with a few laughs as the amiable mistress of misinterpretation tries to help the children and the judge, a professor improbably named Dinglebatt. After Amelia Bedelia pours too much baking soda into Jason's soda-and vinegar-powered volcano model, it produces an explosion instead of the usual fizzle and drizzle. Using the leaf blower from Wendy's flying-saucer demonstration, she attempts to control the eruption. Instead, she sends Dr. Dinglebatt's hairpiece soaring across the gym. Well designed for young readers and brightened with ink-and-watercolor illustrations, this cheerful book extends the popular series. Carolyn Phelan

This book is great. It made me laugh. Amelia Bedelia is always funny and in this book she is silly at the science fair. I liked it more than most of the other Amelia Bedelia books.

I purchased 2 copies of this book as a donation to Wounded Knee District School in Manderson SD. It was a special request by their Principal who is trying to build resources in the desperately poor Pine Ridge Indian Reservation school. Many of the kids have NO books at home. They have a wish list at http://friendsofpineridgereservation.org/projects/Books_for_a_Reservation_Elementary_School_-_Wounded_Knee_District_School.shtml
Of course, all will be well in the end, but first there will be laugh-out-loud midadventures including a toupee on a computer, getting the "bugs" out of an invention, and enough misunderstandings to make Amelia Bedelia, Rocket Scientist? one of your child's favorite books.
