Amelia Bedelia, from the series by Peggy Parish, takes everything literally; the nuances of social conversations escape her, which is both amusing and uncomfortably familiar. When her employer tells her to "dress the chicken," she puts it in a tiny set of overalls. When he asks if the letters are "stamped," she throws them on the ground and stomps on them.
Yet, despite her mishaps, she wins over everyone with her persistence and goodwill. And, once her employer realizes the special way her mind works, the family writes instructions in ways she can understand. Every person with ADHD should be so lucky to have family and friends who support their unique way of thinking.
