Meet the Author
Harry Allard is the author of several hilarious books for children, including three books about Miss Nelson and four books about the Stupid family, all illustrated by James Marshall. He currently lives in Oaxaca, Mexico.
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.

The Stupids are fun,stupid,and absolutely hilarious! If you are having a bad day--just pick up a 'Stupid' book and laugh out loud. Marshall is one of my heroes when it comes to children's book humor!
This book is so great. My kids, ages 4 and 5 found this book to be hilarious. Kids love to correct the mistakes that The Stupids make. Great read for adults, too. Especially after 5 or 10 times.
