George & Martha #03: George and Martha: The Best of Friends

George & Martha #03: George and Martha: The Best of Friends Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

George and Martha: The Best of Friends contains the classic stories “The Attic” and “The Surprise” and includes fun and educational activities!

Synopsis:

Great friends arent hard to find—theyre right here! Houghton Mifflin is delighted to publish two more George and Martha readers. Using original art and text from James Marshalls storybooks, the tales are reformatted for beginning readers.

Marshalls themes are all resonant with a reading-age child—navigating the waters of first friendships, honesty versus kindness, curiosity versus privacy. These are the kind of deeply humorous, deeply true stories that inspire a love of reading!

In these two stories, George and Martha are still riding round and round on their delightful whirlwind of friendship.

Story Number One: The Attic Martha wants to tell George a scary story but scares herself before she can even tell it.

Story Number Two: The Surprise Martha learns to forgive George, but she does not forget.

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.
