From The Critics
Children's Literature
Moss brings another addition to her collection of Amelia's notebooks. This time, Amelia is providing us with 50 fail-proof tips on how to survive boredom, such as #1, "See if you can touch the tip of your nose with your tongue" and #7, "Think up comic book sound effects for real life," Not all of her ideas are silly, however, some are even educational, such as #25, "Think up all the figures of speech you can," and #38, "Think of great first sentences for a story." As before, text and pictures are woven together on lined paper with humorous quips in the margins. Not only is this a great children's book, but it also provides lots of creative ideas for young readers.
