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.

i started buying these for my little boy when he was less than 2 years old (in 1980). i was a poor young parent, and could only afford similar paperback then priced at $1.95 or so. i enjoyed reading all the James Marshall stories to my son, who eventually went on to bigger books, and eventually grew up and so on. but i'll never forget the fun we had each night reading together. and i'll never forget James Marshall who died much too young. If you are a parent of a toddler, start with these stories. read one at least, every night.
