Amelia Bedelia Sets Sail

Amelia Bedelia Sets SailAmelia Bedelia Chapter Books, #7

Written by Herman Parish, Illustrated by Lynne Avril

Amelia Bedelia and her mother and father are spending a week’s vacation at the beach with her Aunt Mary and Cousin Jason. There are so many things to do like swimming, fishing, surfing, beachcombing, learning to sail, picking blackberries, talking about pirates, and just hanging out with Jason. But Jason has a secret and one night Amelia sees him sneak out the bedroom window. Where is he going?

This is a great easy chapter book that makes you hear the sound of the surf, smell the salty air, and feel the sand between your toes. Amelia is at her best with adventure and humor and the love of family. The familiar black and white illustrations of Lynne Avril accentuate the story and add to the feel of the beach. After reading, you will wish you could spend a week in this delightful beach community.
