James Marshall

Who doesn't love those charming hippopotami, George and Martha?  And what class of kids hasn't longed for a teacher like Miss Nelson?

James Marshall (1942-1992) is the creator of these and many other well-loved children's literature characters.  Mr. Marshall was born here in San Antonio on October 10.  So -- this is a good month to enjoy some of his books and to look for the visual tributes to Texas he often slipped in to his illustrations.
