George and Martha: One More Time : James Marshall :Reasonable people can differ about books, and about authors. My Lee Child, your Walter Mosley. My Alice Munro, your Carol Shields. Who looks at tawdry, terrifying Elizabeth Taylor and ruined, smoldering Richard Burton and says, aha, those fun-loving besties? The refined sensibilities of his hippos stand in touching contrast to their obvious tonnage, and his pen line — though never forgetting their impossible weight and size — endows them with the grace and airiness of a ballerina and her cavalier. In the books, the first of which was published in , George often wearing a fedora and Martha rose behind a tiny hippo-ear are great friends — such great friends that there are no other characters in their world aside from silent, supporting players like the crocodile bookseller, the hippopotamus dentist.
