About the Author
James Marshall (1942and#8211;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 childrenand#8217;s books, James Marshall played the viola, studied French, and received a masterand#8217;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 lifeand#8217;s work as one of the finest creators of childrenand#8217;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.
