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 childrens books, James Marshall played the viola, studied French, and received a masters degree from Trinity College. He also doodled. It was the doodles, and the unforgettable characters that emerged from them, that led him to his lifes work as one of the finest creators of childrens 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.
