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 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.

From AudioFile:

Michael Moss's jazzy music highlights the humor in this read-along featuring two of the most famous friends in children's literature, hippos George and Martha. The five stories playfully deliver important life lessons. George learns honesty when Martha catches him pouring pea soup into his loafers rather than hurt her feelings by not eating it. George learns about respect when Martha clouts him with her bathtub when he peeks in on her. The characterizations by George Loeb make the hippo pair seem even more human. A bouncy sound signals the page-turns, adding to the fun. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
