Amelia Bedelia Chapter Book #7: Amelia Bedelia Sets Sail
Amelia Bedelia is thrilled. She’s going to the beach. She will stay there with her Aunt Mary and her cousin, Jason. Once they get there, Jason takes Amelia out skim surfing. Her father accidentally steps on the surfboard and rides the waves out into the ocean. He’s hardly able to keep his balance on the tiny little board. The waves carry him back to the beach where he lands in a bunch of seaweed. Later, when Amelia holds a conch shell up to her ear, she gets pinched by a baby crab. When the day is through, she is exhausted. Just before she’s falling asleep, she sees Jason sneaking out the window. When she follows him, she finds out he’s part of a pirate club. They’re going to destroy the upcoming Beach Ball Festival! She tries to talk him out of it, but she doesn’t talk to his pirate friends. Read the book to find out what happens next. What will happen? How will things turn out? Will the party be ruined?
It seems like there are millions of funny things in this book! The really hilarious part about Amelia Bedelia is that she takes things so seriously and literally. If you say, “Let’s go bodysurfing!” she will think you mean standing on someone’s back on the waves. If you love mysteries, you will love this book. If you love humor, you will love this book. No matter what you love to read, this book is great!
