The stories involve Amelia Bedelia Rogers repeatedly misunderstanding various commands of her employer by always taking figures of speech and various terminology literally, causing her to perform incorrect actions with a comical effect. Part of her insight into literalism is that she comes from a family who takes everything literally: their method of ridding their house of dust is to “undust the furniture. ” However, she almost always manages to win everyone over at the end by baking a delicious pie or cake. Much of her employment is as a maid for a wealthy couple known as the Rogers, who are astute enough to realize her literalism and write their requests as “undust the furniture” and “put the wet towels in the laundry and replace them with clean dry ones,” as opposed to simply “change the towels. ”
