Because she does exactly as she is told, Amelia Bedelia is fired from one job after another. Amelia Bedelia is always getting herself into trouble! When Mrs. Rogers asks for cereal with her coffee, Amelia Bedelia does exactly what she is told; she puts cereal in the coffee. Mrs. Rogers is so angry she fires her! Poor Amelia Bedelia must look for another job. At each place she tries-the beauty shop, the dress shop, and the doctor's office-Amelia Bedelia keeps getting mixed up. Is there anything Amelia Bedelia can do well? In this vibrant edition, newly recolored by the original illustrator, Amelia Bedelia's job search gets her into another homonym hot seat because she does what she's told-literally. For example, she gets a job as a file clerk, only she takes out a nail file and shreds the papers she's supposed to file away! The comic convolutions are endless and endlessly enjoyable
