Humorous (fiction), Trade Book, Lexile 340
It's literal-minded Amelia Bedelia's first day of work as the Rodgers' maid, and boy, are they in for a big surprise because she doesn't quite get figurative language. Ask Amelia to draw the drapes, and you will get a drawing of drapes. Ask her to dust the furniture, and she will cover everything in dust. And if you ask Amelia to dress the chicken, you'd better brace yourself! Fortunately, Amelia Bedelia's baking, especially her lemon meringue pie, more than compensates for her many misunderstandings.
