I LOVE Amelia Bedelia, always have, so you can understand my excitement when Hermann Perish came out with Amelia Bedelia: Road Trip, because you know how much I love road trips as well. Basically, Amelia's dad gets a bonus at work and the family decides to drive around their state on a road trip. Their idea is to "roam" around, not having a destination, just enjoying the ride. Miss Amelia and her parents have some pretty funny misunderstandings between them, giving your middle readers some comic relief and a super cute tale with the appropriate amount of vocabulary to make them smarter. And Lynne Avril kicks ass with the illustrations. Win, win, win, win.
