Great friends aren’t hard to find—they’re right here! Houghton Mifflin is delighted to publish two more George and Martha readers. Using original art and text from James Marshall’s storybooks, the tales are reformatted for beginning readers.
Marshall’s themes are all resonant with a reading-age child—navigating the waters of first friendships, honesty versus kindness, curiosity versus privacy. These are the kind of deeply humorous, deeply true stories that inspire a love of reading!
In these two stories, George and Martha are still riding round and round on their delightful whirlwind of friendship.
Story Number One: The Attic Martha wants to tell George a scary story but scares herself before she can even tell it.
Story Number Two: The Surprise Martha learns to forgive George, but she does not forget.
