Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Two familiar stories about George and his friend Martha are included in this early reader. The large duo head up into the attic, where Martha tells her buddy that she will tell him stories that will bring chills. George says stop, because he is getting frightened just by the lead up to the tales, and guess what, Martha has done a good job of scaring herself. George just cannot resist; he spies Martha enjoying a rest in a hammock, and he has a hose in his hand. He gives in to the temptation and sprays water all over his best friend. She lets him know that they are no longer on speaking terms, but eventually she relents and forgives him. However, come next summer, it looks like Martha will get her sweet revenge. Fans will be delighted to share these stories with yet another generation, and the final page gives a brief biography of this award winning author/illustrator. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

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.
