More About Herman Parish & Lynn Sweat


Herman Parish In true Amelia Bedelia fashion, I backed into writing these books about the literal-minded housekeeper who children laugh at and love.

Amelia Bedelia was created by my aunt, Peggy Parish. Although she passed away in 1988, Peggy still received fan mail from children. They wondered when the next Amelia Bedelia book would be out. Then other children's authors wrote and volunteered to continue the series.

I felt uneasy about Amelia Bedelia leaving our family. As I was in the fourth grade when she first appeared, I had literally grown up with her. So I decided to try to write a new Amelia Bedelia adventure. My two sisters and my family were supportive and encouraged me.

I'd had experience in writing advertisements. I reread the Amelia Bedelia stories to figure our what made them funny. I realized that everyday life overflows with idiomatic expressions, literalisms and homophones. It's amazing more people don't get confused — besides Amelia Bedelia!

My first book, Good Driving, Amelia Bedelia, took me a year to think about and one night to write. I had been collecting ideas, homonyms, and expressions. Whenever I heard them, I jotted them down: on napkins in restaurants, on my newspaper while riding the bus, and on agenda sheets in business meetings.

I stockpiled these fragments in a folder until one Sunday night, with my family asleep, I decided that it was now or never. I sat down around ten o'clock and began to write. I was so focused on the story that I finished as the sun came up on Monday morning. Naturally, the story needed revision, but the essence was captured in that all-night writing spree.

I am fortunate that my editor, Susan Hirschman, and the illustrator, Lynn Sweat, had worked with Peggy on many Amelia Bedelia books That helped make the transition from Peggy's books to mine as seamless as possible.

I feel very lucky to be writing Amelia Bedelia books and continuing a family tradition. But the best reward was when a child wrote Peggy Parish a fan letter. It said that Good Driving Amelia Bedelia was the best book she had written. To me, that the highest compliment I could hope for.

Herman Parish currently resides in Princeton, in the state of New Jersey.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bravo, Amelia Bedelia!?

Amelia Bedelia in show business? What could possibly go wrong?  Feb 4, 2008
Amelia Bedelia is going to help out in an orchestra, and a chorus of laughter is sure to result!

In her usual fashion, our wonderfully confused friend is on the job, messing things all up with the finest of intentions. The cheerful illustrations add to the young readers's fascination with Bravo, Amelia Bedelia!

Atonal Amelia  Oct 30, 2005
Amelia's trademark is taking all directions literally without applying reason. This time she has the insane notion that she's going to play in the school band. Naturally she bollixes up the works and the show ends on a sour note - literally, thanks to Amelia's blundering miscalculations. Since baking is her strength, perhaps the conductor will relent if he eats some of her desserts.

 
Very cute book!  Mar 5, 2005
If you're familiar with the Amelia books, this is a continuation of the zany antics of the gal who just "takes things literally." In this edition, Amelia, poor thing, just cannot get it together to play in the school orchestra. She tries and by the end of the story, finds herself rolling into a bass drum and stealing the show. You know it's going to be band when the story begins with Amelia being instructed to pick up the conductor. Well, she tries to "pick up the conductor" of the local train but says, "I tried to pick him up but he just preferred to walk." And, on it goes from there. The guest conductor finally arrives and Amelia decides to help him out with the rehearsal and the performance. The conductor finally gets Amelia locked into a room and instructs her not to come out until her cue but well, she misses her cue and runs into the bass drum. It's a very cute story about misconceptions and how we should all clarify what we mean. Honestly, if we all took literally what we said then we would all be Amelia Bedelias. Great story, we have to read this one quite a bit in our house at bedtime. Very funny stuff!
