Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The spare text, a treat for beginning readers or for sharing with pre-readers, perfectly matches the deceptively simple illustrations, which glow with humor and affection."—School Library Journal
Barnes & Noble Staff
These five short stories, starring two huge hippos with buckteeth and pin-dot eyes, show what friendship is all about. Covering topics such as privacy, vanity, and honesty, all are told with a dry but gentle humor. Marshall knows just how much not to say, and his pictures convey volumes.

Meet the Author

James Marshall (1942–1992) created dozens of exuberant and captivating books for children, including The Stupids, Miss Nelson Is Missing!, and the ever-popular George and Martha books. Before creating his canon of classic, hilarious children’s books, James Marshall played the viola, studied French, and received a master’s degree from Trinity College. He also doodled. It was the doodles, and the unforgettable characters that emerged from them, that led him to his life’s work as one of the finest creators of children’s books of the twentieth century. In 2007, James Marshall was posthumously awarded the Laura Ingalls Wilder medal for his lasting contribution to literature for children.
