Like all best friends, George and Martha do everything together-go to the movies, play at the beach.

Like all best friends, George and Martha do everything together-go to the movies, play at the beach. 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.

You can purchase the series in a compilation or individually. I prefer the compilation, but the individual books are great for kids because they’re easier to handle. This series is perfect for early grade classrooms and emergent readers. The stories are short and composed of simple text. The George and Ma I loved George and Martha when I was growing up.

The Collected Stories of George and Martha: Two Best Friends is all 35 George and Martha stories. I would display it right where guests would see it even before they take off their coats.

I am a school-based speech pathologist, and I LOVE this book. It is great because the stories are short, but have all the elements of a great story (characters, setting, problem, actions, conclusion) and teach through the lens of the friendship between two loveable and goofy hippos. Students of various ages have asked about the book and later told me they checked it out from the library because they loved it so much. I had initially borrowed it from the school library, but then bought it for myself because I loved it so much.

These are among my favorite books and I have always used them with children in a professional setting and the content fosters great discussions about friends and how George and Martha can do silly things and still be best friends. Personally, they make me laugh and I love reading them to myself and others to create a few giggles……these books are such fun!

My first grader son read some of the George and Martha books at school, and he loved them. I wanted to get some for him to read at home, but they are pretty old, so I couldn't find any locally. I decided to order this compilation rather than keep purchasing them all separately. My son was very excited to receive it, and has read many of the stories in it more than once already. Great for beginning and intermediate readers.

I loved these stories as a kid. My little sister and I used to read through George and Martha book we had and see who could go longer without laughing. We always ended up cracking up. I had to buy this complete set to read to my second grade students. There were some old favorites and some I had never read before. I also liked the bonus anecdotes and commentaries by other children's authors. My students fell in love with George & Martha as I did all over again.

I am prejudiced about Marshall. I, like many other parents and like other children's writers, think that Marshall is absolutely superb. His drawings dawn on you in their significance after many readings, his prose, after only one.

If I were to write a book that portrayed boys and girls on equal footing, and I wanted to show them both how to take account of one another honestly, I would have written about George and Martha.

This edition has all of the stories, and it is a bargain price compared with buying each paperback book individually. It makes a great holiday or birthday gift. We have already given four away to friends, and everyone says how much they love reading them (over and over) to their children.

What I can't understand is why people seem never to have heard of George and Martha. They've been around for more than 30 years, and I remember receiving my first copy back when Jimmy Carter was president and Reading Is Fundamental instituted its programs in the libraries. If only we spent as much money giving George and Martha to children these days...they might start to like reading again.

SUPER ADORABLE!!! These two hippos are extremely hilarious, fun, loving, and adorably cute and so are their friends. Maurice Sendak and James Marshall again have created another masterpiece again!!! Loved them since I was a little girl and always will even when i'm a hundred year old little girl!!! Love love George and Martha!! :)

My daughter quickly fell in love with these characters, she now reads the stories to her little brother. I loved these stories as a child, so glad I was able to pass them on to my babies!
The *George and Martha* books are classic, must-haves for young children, and they are equally delightful for adults. Marshall's wry but warm sense of humor about the friendship between two adult hippos is full of insight about relationships in general. It's fun to have all the stories collected together, though it makes for a volume that is more unwieldy than the individual paperbacks. That might be an issue for young children. But the adults in my life who received it for Christmas this year--ranging from my 90+ year-old father to my decidedly unsentimental gentleman friend--were absolutely charmed. And I think my daughters (in their teens and 20s) would have been happy to get a copy, too.
