Great friends aren't hard to find—they're right here! We are delighted to provide another offering of James Marshall's George and Martha in the reader format. Using original art and text from Marshall's storybooks, the tales have been reformatted to the traditional 6 x 9 trim. Marshall's themes are all resonant with a reader age child—navigating the waters of first friendships, honesty versus kindness, curiosity versus privacy. This book contains the classic “The Scary Movie!” and “The Secret Club” stories.
About 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.
