Horn Book Review

Young Amelia Bedelia cares for the class hamster, Harry, during school break when he disappears from his habitat. Friends Clay and Dawn help her search, and eventually they find six little surprise additions with Harriet. Amelia Bedelia's usually humorous literalness is unfortunately lackluster here; still, the sweet twist ending and the dynamic gouache illustrations should engage new readers. (c) Copyright 2018.
