Herman Parish was in the fourth grade when his aunt, Peggy Parish, wrote the first book about Amelia Bedelia. Since then, the lovable housekeeper has become a favorite household character for readers young and old. After Peggy Parish died in 1988, her nephew continued Amelia Bedelia's exploits in Good Driving, Amelia Bedelia; Bravo, Amelia Bedelia!; Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor; Calling Doctor Amelia Bedelia; Amelia Bedelia, Bookworm; Happy Haunting, Amelia Bedelia; Amelia Bedelia, Rocket Scientist?; Amelia Bedelia Under Construction; and Amelia Bedelia's Masterpiece.
