Herman Parish was in the fourth grade when his aunt, Peggy Parish, wrote the first book about Amelia Bedelia, the literal-minded housekeeper. After Peggy passed away in 1988, Herman continued the classic character, writing about Amelia Bedelia in more than 30 new books. In addition to her exploits as a housekeeper, there are now stories about Amelia Bedelia as a young girl in picture books, beginning readers, and a new series of chapter books that have become national bestsellers.
