Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–This third book featuring the young and modernized Amelia is more of a traditional picture book than an easy reader, and the oversize format allows for plenty of space for the many activities that take place. Pictures in fall colors are in various sizes, from full page to several smaller illustrations per page, featuring apples, pumpkins, and autumn-hued leaves. Here, Amelia is visiting her grandparents and making a pie with Grandma. She's still up to her typical antics, mistaking Granny Smith for a person and thinking that a farmer's market is a place to buy farmers. Children will find the humor relevant and funny. The illustrations flow well with the text; the words are placed in a manner that creates movement, guiding the eye from picture to picture. This is a great book to use for a fall unit or storyhour. The apple pie recipe is included at the end.–Lora Van Marel, Orland Park Public Library, IL. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

More About the Author

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 with Good Driving, Amelia Bedelia; Bravo, Amelia Bedelia!; Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor and now Calling Doctor Amelia Bedelia, her nephew is carrying on -- for a new generation of readers -- the tradition she began years ago.

In His Own Words... "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 very supportive and encouraged me. I'd had experience in writing advertisements. I reread the Amelia Bedelia stories to figure out 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 is the best book she has written. To me, that's the highest compliment I could hope for."

Format: Hardcover
Our family loves Amelia Bedelia Books and we love apples.So, this book was perfect for us.It still has the Amedlia Bedelia humor we have grown to love.
This book is what Amelia does when she is visiting her Grandparents. One of our favorite pages is when Amelia goes to the market with her granddad, and she sees bushels of different apples. We love reading the different apple names. There are so many wonderful apples with silly names. Amelia truly learns to have fun with her family. Grandma and Amelia each bake an apple pie. Amelia's pie is the small one. You will have read to see what happens next.

Red, green and yellow apples, the sound of leaves crunching under your feet, crisp fall air and to top it all off at grandma's house. This is such a wonderful book, reading it at the right time just launches you right into fall. We have added this to our in home library for our little girl. The best part is that there is a recipe for a wonderfully delicious apple pie. So what better way to read this book then top it off with a homemade apple pie, shared with your favorite people.
