Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The full weight of a meaningful friendship is once again explored through a series of stories about everyone's favorite hefty hippos. Ages 4-8. (March)
Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
George and Martha, the two hippos, return with three lighthearted, amusing, short stories. In an attempt to impress Martha, George brags how he was an outstanding jumper and notorious pirate, however, that does little to impress Martha until he mentions that he was a well-known snake charmer. Martha has the last word on the topic, and George does find out that he does have some bragging rights as the story comes to an end with an interesting twist. In the second story, Martha is deeply absorbed while observing fleas in her laboratory. The flea scientist finds her work on the itchy side. George helps his friend only to find out what her next scientific topic of study will be. In the final story, read to find out how Martha gets George to go on a picnic when he prefers to stay in bed. The illustrations provide moderate support, and the story moves along on the dialogue of George and Martha. Readers may need support understanding the inferences in the story and the twist of the endings. Fans of the "George and Martha" series will continue to love the humor, and those who are new to George and Martha stories will find additional books to enjoy with laughter.
