Ameilia's Moving Pictures

Reflecting Amelia's fondness of keeping her journal, the visual motifs of her notebook and pictures as well as her "creative" ideas and runaway imagination are woven into the video. Of course, the business of leaving a best friend behind and starting at a new school can't be so neatly solved, but this may help school-age fans of Amelia. 22 mins.
