Amelia Bedelia

Written by Peggy Parish and Illustrated by Fritz Siebel

The first in a series of books about Amelia Bedelia who works as a maid and has a habit of taking all figures of speech literally. As a result, she makes hilarious mistakes, though her employers, the Rogers, have learned to compensate. No one can stay mad at Amelia Bedilia for long because she apologizes by baking a cake or pie.
