All-time Best George & Martha Story… No. 6 / All-time greatest kidlit illustration

Actually, I don’t remember which number this is. But it’s a crowded field of nominees, because, frankly, George and Martha just about the perfect kids stories: quick, funny, deep, true and wondrous.

Here’s one of the shortest and silliest and. perhaps, the all-time best:

“The Tub” from the first G&M book, “George and Martha.”

32 words long!

This story, short as it is, contains two strong contenders for the title of All-Time Greatest Kidlit Illustration.

First is George peeking in the window:

Second is this outrageous odalesque of Martha actually IN THE TUB! My stars!
