Great friends aren't hard to find--they're right here! We are delighted to provide another offering of James Marshall's George and Martha stories in the reader format. Using original art and text from Marshall's storybooks, the tales have been reformatted to the traditional 6 x 9 trim. Marshall's themes are all resonant with a reader age child--navigating the waters of first friendships, honesty versus kindness, curiosity versus privacy.

This book contains the classic "The Fibber," "The Experiment," and "The Picnic" stories.

Baker & Taylor

& Taylor

In stories featuring the hippo friends, George tries to impress Martha with fibs of his exploits, Martha's research causes her to itch, and Martha must find a way to get George to join her on a picnic.
