Five vignettes continue the adventures of George and Martha, the two lovable hippos and their strong friendship.
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.

George and Martha Round and Round based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The book shows how important a friend really is. Even though you may get into fights you should always learn to forgive and forget. I love the characters and how they are animals. I think books with animals as the characters are more eye catching to a young child and keeps them interested in the story being read.
George and Martha are so, so funny. This one had me in stitches; it reminds me a lot of my frienship with Jason, which has similar moments of ridiculousness.
