Read full description of the books:
Many Amelia Bedelia books are hilarious fun (and, incidentally, can be used to teach children about homonyms)but this one does not fill the bill. (Amelia Bedelia would think "pelican" here.) Amelia is getting a tad too savvy and her employers are a bit too tolerant--the inevitable conflict between the bewildered Mr. and Mrs. Rogers and the befuddled Amelia and its inevitable resolution with a superb baked offering was part of the charm of the earlier books. And the word play is just not as much fun in this book. However, there is a sweet "maid finds cat" story so cat fanciers may find something to love here. The lexile measure is 400 for the book (140 for the original)and the Lexile site says the book is for ages 5 to 9, but I think fourth graders would be bored with this.

Read information about the authorHerman Parish is the author of Amelia Bedelia children's book series, nephew of original author, Peggy Parish. Having grown up with his aunt’s tales of Amelia’s humorous misadventures, Herman decided to carry on the legacy after his aunt’s death in 1988. He did not wish to entrust the future of the series into the hands of a children’s author outside of the family. Since Peggy had the summers off from teaching, she was able to stay with the Parish family for extended periods of time, allowing Herman and Peggy to develop a close relationship. More importantly, this gave Herman a chance to keenly observe Peggy during her writing processes, gaining great insight to the road ahead of him. To carry on the essence of the series, Herman thoroughly examined his aunt’s work and did his best to capture what exactly made the character of Amelia Bedelia such a hit. Having editor Susan Hirschman and illustrator Lynn Sweat in common with his aunt helped to make the transition. He has added thirteen more books to the series. Herman is a resident of Princeton, New Jersey, and travels to libraries and schools across the United States, speaking and inspiring young children. The importance of revising and editing is often stressed during these dynamic lectures. He has presented to students in more than 22 states.
