About the Author:

Herman Parish was in the fourth grade when his aunt, Peggy Parish, wrote the first book about Amelia Bedelia. The author lives in Princeton, New Jersey.



Lynn Sweat has illustrated many Amelia Bedelia books, including Go West, Amelia Bedelia! He and his wife live in Connecticut.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3 Mrs. Hardy is expecting an addition and asks Amelia Bedelia to babysit for her children while she goes to the doctor. Then workers from a construction company stop to ask Amelia for directions and Amelia looks at the address, gets the numbers backward, and convinces the workers that they were sent to build an addition on the Hardy family's house. The literal woman and the children start to help the construction workers, and it's all downhill from there. The text is a bit wordy for beginning readers and the story line is somewhat confusing. A few of the terms may be a little difficult to grasp (such as the concept of a marble-top counter and a walk-in closet). The cartoon illustrations help clarify some of Amelia Bedelia's mix-ups, but others will need explanation. Still, fans of the series will enjoy this title. Bobbee Pennington, Bryan Public Library, TX
