About the Author

Harry Allard is the author of many hilarious books for children, including several Miss Nelson and Stupid Family titles, all illustrated by James Marshall.

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.

This is my favorite in the series. Yes it is "stupid" but it puts a smile on my face. We laugh at the absurdity and the tongue in cheek humor, ie "you sure can Polka Dot". My kids loved it, all the classes I read it to love it.If you are a bore and only want to read enlightening literature, this is not the book for you. If you want to loose yourself for a moment, enjoy!
