If I were to write a book that portrayed boys and girls on equal footing, and I wanted to show them both how to take account of one another honestly, I would have written about George and Martha.
This edition has all of the stories, and it is a bargain price compared with buying each paperback book individually. It makes a great holiday or birthday gift. We have already given four away to friends, and everyone says how much they love reading them (over and over) to their children.
What I can't understand is why people seem never to have heard of George and Martha. They've been around for more than 30 years, and I remember receiving my first copy back when Jimmy Carter was president and Reading Is Fundamental instituted its programs in the libraries. If only we spent as much money giving George and Martha to children these days...they might start to like reading again.

I could not believe how awful it was! I am used to reading quality texts to my class and this fell far short of my standards. I am returning it and would strongly advise anyone considering buying it for the same reason to not bother.
If this book doesn't make you laugh and if you are not moved by George and Martha, then check your pulse because you must be dead.
