James Marshall (1942-1992) was the illustrator of over 50 books for children, and the author of many of them including the George and Martha books which became a children’s television show. In addition to George and Martha, the lovable hippopotami, James Marshall created dozens of other uniquely appealing characters. He is well-known for his Fox Series, as well as the Miss Nelson books, the Stupids, the Cut-ups, and many more. Marshall won a University of Mississippi Silver Medallion in 1992, and received the Caldecott Honor in 1989 for Goldilocks and the Three Bears. In 2007, he was posthumously honored by the ALA with the Laura Ingalls Wilder medal for his “substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children.”
