Peggy Parish was born and grew up in Manning, South Carolina. Before moving to New York City, she taught school in the Panhandle country and in coal-mining areas. Her first job in New York City was with the Girl Scouts, and she now teaches the third grade at the Dalton School in Manhattan. Miss Parish is the author of several other books for children, including the popular Let's Be Indians.
Fritz Siebel was born in Vienna and now lives in New York City with his family. He is well known for his pictures in Cat and Dog; David and the Giant; and Tell Me Some More . . . , all Harper I Can Read Books. Among the other books he has illustrated are A Fly Went By and Who Took the Farmer's Hat?
“The hilarious antics of a housekeeper whose literal interpretations of her list of chores lead to some extremely funny messes.”
“The new maid, Amelia Bedelia, was so eager to please that she followed her instructions to the letter with the kind of silly results that will make kindergarten children giggle.”
“The younger children for whom this nonsense makes a good read-aloud, and those older who will find it easy to read, will giggle through its series of jokes.”
“Amelia Bedelia, the new maid, slightly suggests the famous Mary Poppins, but she makes her entry discreetly through the doorway, on her two feet, instead of blowing in on the wind. This is purely a ‘silly’ book, with no lesson to impart, but it will seem hilarious to young children.”
