George and Martha: The Complete Stories of Two Best Friends (George & Martha) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like all best friends, George and Martha do everything together—go to the movies, play at the beach, and just hang around not doing much of anything. George and Martha teach each other (and adoring readers) that even in a close friendship, privacy is important, practical jokes can sometimes backfire, and among other things, pouring split pea soup into your loafers to spare the chefs feelings is not the best-laid plan. A man with a talent for friendship, James Marshall defined its very essence in his stories about the worlds two best friends. In this volume, all thirty-five episodes are brought together to celebrate friendship and two of the most lovable characters ever created. Each of these brief tales is filled with humor, and James Marshalls drawings are guaranteed to spark feelings of empathy, delight, and self-recognition.

This collectors edition includes an introduction by MauriceSendak as well as appreciations by some of the top authorsand illustrators working in childrens publishing today.It is a true testament to James Marshall as an author, as an artist, and as a person that his work and his life inspired such a diverse and immensely talented group. Noted childrens book historian Anita Silvey provides an afterword.

Synopsis:

In this volume, all 35 of Marshall's beloved George and Martha stories are brought together to celebrate friendship. This collector's edition includes an Introduction by Maurice Sendak as well as appreciations by some of today's top children's authors and illustrators. Full color.

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.
