Product Description

When you can't stand split pea soup and you don't want to hurt your friend Martha's feelings after she's made pot after pot of it, what else can you do but hide the soup so she thinks you ate it? And if your loafters are the only place available, well, it's all in the name of friendship. Friendship is friendship even if you're a hippopotamus. At least that's the way George looks at things and even though he doesn't fool Martha, all ends happily with chocolate chip cookies instead of split pea soup. Friendship proves a delicate thing, even when it exists between two not so delicate creatures as George and Martha.

Author Bio

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.

Editorial Reviews

"The secret of Mr. Marshall's success lies not just in the freshness of his sense of the ridiculous, but in the carefulness of his control and editorial judgment." The New York Times
