With Amelia Bedelia, anything can happen!
Amelia Bedelia wants a new bike—a shiny, fast one just like Suzanne's. Amelia Bedelia's mom says that a bike like that is expensive and will cost an arm and a leg. Amelia Bedelia can't give away one of her arms and one of her legs! She needs both arms to steer, and both legs to pedal. What Amelia Bedelia needs is a job.
Look out! Here comes Amelia Bedelia, and she means business!
