* LongRunnerTechMarchesOn: It seems as if there is no longer any attempt being made with the young Amelia Bedelia books to try to pretend as though they're set in the time period that would actually fit the Amelia Bedelia seen in the original books. ''Amelia Bedelia on the Job'' shows Amelia Bedelia's father working on a laptop, even though personal computers didn't even exist during the 1960s time period in which the books with the adult Amelia Bedelia were first published.

Additionally, ''Amelia Bedelia's First Library Card'' depicts a clearly modern library.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: A ''lot'' of Amelia's mess-ups cause one - or both - of her employers to laugh out loud.

** Telling Amelia Bedelia, "Oh, go fly a kite!" doesn't upset her, since she finds kite-flying relaxing.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Readers accustomed to Lynn Sweat's character designs (seen in almost all of the books written since 1976) might find it jarring to read a book illustrated by one of his predecessors, especially if it shows Amelia Bedelia with no stockings and/or Mr. and Mrs. Rogers (her bosses) with gray hair instead of brown.

The first book also portrays Mr. and Mrs. Rogers as a wealthy couple with a mansion, while later books inexplicably relocate them to the suburbs.
