DECATUR, Ga. -- The author of a wildly popular children's book series will visit Decatur at the end of the month.

Herman Parish will be at the Little Shop of Stories at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31.

Parish is the nephew of Peggy Parish, who started the "Amelia Bedelia" series about a scatterbrained but lovable maid. Peggy Parish passed away in 1988; her nephew took over the series in 1995.

Two new Amelia Bedelia chapter books will hit store shelves in January: Amelia Bedelia Means Business and Amelia Bedelia Unleashed.
