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 Publishers Weekly:

A neurotic pig plans a party for National Snout Day in Portly McSwine by James Marshall, first published in 1979. What if my refreshments aren t tasty enough? he worries. Marshall s signature sketches show the porcine star s preparations. (Aug.)
