Meet Amelia Louise McBride.

She's nine years old, a former New Yorker who's now living in a small town after her parents decided to get divorced, and dealing with everything from being the new kid in school to getting her first kiss. But you know what? She's got her mom and her aunt Tanner (who happens to be an ex-rock star) and her friends Reggie, Rhonda, and Pajamaman, and everything's going to be okay. Except, of course, when it isn't.

In this first book of Amelia's adventures, Amelia and her friends take on bullies (and Santa!), barely survive gym class, and receive a disgustingly detailed explanation of the infamous Sneeze Barf.

Funny graphic novel about Amelia and her three pals. Has some adult humor in it which is not inappropriate for kids, just more likely that adults will get it. Amelia is dealing with a new school after she and her mother move from Manhattan to a small town in Pennsylvania after Mom and Dad divorce. Book deals with some real problems while still remaining funny. A good addition to an elementary school collection.

This graphic novel is hilarious. I'm 27 and I was honestly laughing or smiling the throughout it because I kept thinking of my daughters sometimes eccentric personality! It's has reasonable & fantastic adventure, meaning it may seem a little far fetched at times but stays close enough to reality that a person can identify with it. I think the ability to identify with parts/ or the whole book is what makes it so great. I believe if parents or teachers used this book as a tool for exploring the different types of literature the reader (student/child) would be better for it, and I honestly think that it may force the reader to reflect on the messages within the book and apply them to everyday life. It literally touches on the entire spectrum of emotions a young person may feel, and lets them know that that's okay/normal or part of life. the fact that it gives these lessons through fantastic story teling is a way to ensure to keep the readers attention. The only thing that i thought was poorly done was the fact that the words were crammed onto each page, would have been more effective to make the book a little longer and given closer attention to each page, it is a children's book after all.

This book is wonderful.  I run a school library and the book is always in demand.  I bought 4 hardcover books of this series at the  ALA convention. Mind you, these are hardcover books that cost $19.99.  The books lasted only one use before the book fell apart.  I've been trying to replace the books with library binding but they are not offered. The books cannot be repaired because every page  would have to be taped in and the book does not look desirable after that.  It looks as if it is sewn but whatever process was used has not stood up. It is a disappointment to me and to my students.

Amelia rules the whole worlds crazy is super funny!! It's so real. Amelia talks about things that we kids have always been thinking. For nine year olds they are are pretty mature for thier age. But does that stop them from acting crazy! Nope. If you love 'truthful' humor then I highly recommed this book!
