Herman Parish


Herman Parish was in the fourth grade when his aunt, Peggy Parish, wrote the first book about Amelia Bedelia. The lovable, literal-minded housekeeper has been a member of his family ever since. Peggy Parish died in 1988. She would be proud and delighted to know that her nephew is carrying on—for a new generation of readers—the tradition she began years ago. Herman has added numerous books about the grown-up Amelia Bedelia in addition to picture books, Level-1 I Can Read books, and chapter books about Amelia Bedelia as a young girl.
