內容大要

《喬治與瑪莎》是〈喬治與瑪莎〉系列的第一本書。喬治與瑪莎是兩隻大河馬,他們感情非常要好,這個系列正是描述這兩個好朋友的友情故事,溫馨而感人。全系列採中英對照,方便孩童唸英文。第一本這兩個好朋友之間發生了五則故事:(一)〈分裂豆子湯〉告訴我們〈朋友之間應該永遠說真話〉。(二)〈熱氣球〉喬治不小心讓氣球飛走了,瑪莎安慰他:〈我寧願你留下來和我在一起。〉(三)〈澡盆〉喬治喜歡偷看,瑪莎教訓他:〈朋友之間還是有所謂的隱私。〉(四)〈鏡子〉喬治想出一個計謀讓愛照鏡子的瑪莎不再照子了。(五)〈牙齒〉喬治摔斷了最愛的一顆牙,好難過。換裝成金牙之後,瑪莎贊美他。他高興的說:〈朋友老是看到你的光明面。〉


作者介紹

詹姆斯.馬歇爾(James Marshall)1942年生,1992年歿。

生於美國德州的聖.安東尼歐市,他沒有計畫要做兒童書的作者與插畫家,結果卻成了美國當代非常傑出的童書作者。他的書已經被列入經典的作品,在世界上各個角落散發出他那單純、深刻而且輕鬆的幽默。

他先是與音樂,主修中音提琴,因為一次意外,身體受傷,不得已改學法文與歷史,並以教授法文維生。他因為常常塗鴉而獲得機會創作,進而成為紐約巴松設計學校的教授。

他的代表作是《喬治與瑪莎》。他自己表示,這本書的出現使他認清自己一生志業所在。他的特別才能是直覺的捕捉視覺對象所含藏的單純元素,以一兩個小黑點、一兩修粗線修去安排出故事主人翁的獨特風格。

他的手稿與草圖中所顯現的韻味與力道,在成書中仍然保存。所以,他的書看來似乎未完成,而那正是許多藝術家夢想要做到的境界。

#21: Bark, George by Jules Feiffer (1999)

图片

My favorite readaloud book of all time. I mean it. It's true. To my mind, it's a perfect book. The plot, the characters, the simplicity, and the sheer amount of use you can get out of it. I have read this book to five-year-olds. I have read this book to teenagers. I have read this book to adults. I have even read this book to tweens (who, in a way, are even harder to please than teens) and everyone agrees; George is great. George is tops. George is here to stay.

Horn Book describes the plot as, "When George, a lanky puppy, is told by his mother to bark, he answers with a 'meow' and then a series of other animal noises. When she takes him to a human vet, the man pulls animal after animal out of George's throat. The problem seems to be solved, until the last page when George opens his mouth and 'Hello' comes out."

Strange to think that my favorite readaloud would come from such a hip satirist. Though he began as a playwright, screenwriter, and cartoonist (he was the first cartoonist commissioned by The New York Times to create comic strips for their Op-Ed page!) lately Mr. Feiffer has been turning his attention to the child side of things. And according to his website, "His forthcoming memoir, Backing into Forward, relates how persistent failure inspired him to reinvent himself as an artist over and over." I would like to read that.

I think Publishers Weekly put its finger squarely on why this book is so amazingly popular. "Feiffer reverses the old-lady-who-swallowed-a-fly plot and boosts the giddiness with every barnyard animal removed from tiny George." I never really thought of it that way. Better yet, he did it will animal sounds to boot. Better BETTER than that, the book's gags are perfectly aligned. I mean, when the vet puts on his longest latex glove and reaches [enter here an innumerable series of "deep"s] into George's mouth, I always like to pause for just half a second before I turn the page to reveal the cow that has somehow emerged from the canine's miniscule gullet.

Best of all the book gets the maximum amount of use out of the page turns. You can ratchet up the tension depending on how slowly or quickly you turn them while reading the book.

Publishers Weekly said of it, "This pairing of an ageless joke with a crisp contemporary look will initiate many an animated game of animal sounds."

And Horn Book called it, "A clever, catchy story from a master cartoonist."

Library Journal said, "A pack of fun, with droll illustrations and deadpan text."

#22: The Monster at the End of this Book by Jon Stone, ill. by Mike Smollin (1971)


图片

Brilliantly puts the child in the role of knowing (at least, after the first reading) that there's no need to be afraid of the monster. Also, the child gets to disobey orders and be right to do so. And the timing is perfect all the way through. – Anna Hebner

You will not find The Monster at the End of This Book in The Norton Anthology of Children's Literature. It does not appear in 100 Best Books for Children, or within the pages of Nancy Pearl's Book Crush. It has never won a Caldecott. You cannot find it on most Top 100 Picture Book lists, nor in New York Public Library's collection.

And yet . . . .

And yet here we find at #22, almost making it into the Top 20, the one and only truly successful Sesame Street book ever to touch the hearts and minds of readers everywhere. Sesame Street has a history of frustrating libraries and educators with its sometimes tepid literary production, but there was at least one notable exception to this. And it involved a furry blue monster.

The description of the plot from the publisher reads, "Generations of kids have interacted with lovable, furry old Grover as he begs the reader not to turn the page . . . for a monster is at the end of the book! 'Oh, I am so embarrassed,' he says on the last page, for of course the monster is Grover himself!"

I think Anna Hebner made a magnificent point, by the way, when she pointed out that this book is built upon the premise of disobeying orders. A similar and more recent book, Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems works on an almost opposite premise. In that book you are given your orders at the start and then you (the tiny reader) can feel powerful and justified by denying the Pigeon what it wants. The moral superiority is completely lacking here. True, the kids know perfectly well that Grover is in the wrong, and so they delight in both the naughtiness of going against his wishes and the humor to be plumbed by his increasing breakdown. Even more remarkably, Grover is still a sympathetic character. Unlike the gator (croc?) in the picture book Don't Make Me Laugh by James Stevenson, you aren't disobeying Grover because you don't like him. You do like him! He just doesn't have all his facts in place (and besides, it's fun to see him flail).

……
This is also the only Little Golden Book that I am aware of that's on the Top 100. No mean feat. You can read the whole thing here, and in beautiful big, bright colors too.

The title also inspired two sequels, one good and one evil. I won't tell you which is which but the books were Please Do Not Open This Book and Another Monster at the End of This Book starring Elmo. And according to its wiki the original sold over two million copies in its first year alone.

#23: Bread and Jam for Frances by Russell Hoban, illustrated by Lillian Hoban (1964)

图片

My mom used to get so mad at me, because we had shelves and shelves filled with books and this is always the one I handed her (until we acquired my #1 title of course). I wasn't a picky eater, maybe that's why I loved reading about one! All the Frances titles were popular in my house, but this was definitely my favorite. – Amanda Snow

Frances is just so cool. As a kid I aspired to be that spunky, but I was too shy – Emily G. Jones

The Hobans. We saw them edge onto the list long at #71 with The Little Brute Family. And though it took them almost 50 numbers to pass, we finally get to see them again with the introduction of the world's most beloved . . . she's a badger, right? Yeah. Badger. Sorry, Wind in the Willows. This badger's way cuter.

The publisher's summary of the plot reads, "In this memorable story, Frances decides that bread and jam are all she wants to eat, and her understanding parents grant her wish at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacktime. Can there ever be too much bread and jam?"

Two books on the Top 100 talk about eating more than just one kind of food. The first was Yoko by Rosemary Wells, which was probably less a call for variegated eating than a call for variegated thinking. Frances is a little more straightforward. As a picky eater myself, I sympathize with Frances' instincts. Part of the dangers of growing up to become an adult picky eater is that if you want to eat bread and jam and nothing BUT bread and jam, not only do you have the resources to do so, but you could probably even mix it up a bit. Homegrown organic jams from the Farmer's Market with thick homemade wheat bread. Exotic spiced jams alongside a rustic Italian loaf. Regional jams of Britain with the bread rolls of the southern Yucatan. Maybe you might get sick of one kind of bread and jam, but for the forward thinking picky eater the possibilities are endless.

#24: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault, ill. Lois Ehlert (1989)


图片

I’m going with this one instead of Brown Bear because of every time I see a coconut tree I skit skat skoodle doot flip flop flee. It’s addictive. – Sharon Hrycewicz

I pity the child who never has the chance to shout, “I’ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree.” – Faith Brautigam

With its 1989 publication date I was way too old for this picture book when it was first released. That's too bad since a person with rhythm and tone could really make this a memorable little number. Now a lot of people forget John Archambault's contribution to the book, but he was right in there alongside Bill Martin Jr. when it came to writing it. And then, of course, there is Lois Ehlert. She's done just fine in her own right, but this may well be her best known book to date. It is also, as far as I can ascertain, the only alphabet book on this Top 100 list.

The plot (such as it is) from my review: "Telling a tale of alphabetic foolhardiness, a troop of lower case letters (all of them, in fact) go bounding up the nearby coconut tree for a variety of reasons. When the tree can no longer support their weight the little letters find themselves splayed out on the ground. Fortunately the big letters come along to comfort the little ones, though it's obvious by the end that not all have learned their lesson."

According to 100 Best Books for Children, Ehlert came close to passing on the manuscript. "She read the text, which she found rather strange, and she thought, What would I ever do with this? She was about to send the manuscript back, but upon rereading it she suddenly was struck by the rhythm and dancelike quality of the text."

Publishers Weekly said of it, "Children will revel in seeing the familiar alphabet transported into this madcap adventure."

没有中文版,大概也不需要吧,因为这本书是帮助孩子们学习字母的。
有一位读者这么写:
炫辰爸爸 写道:这是一本很有趣的绘本,忍不住要在这里介绍,它的作者是Bill Jr Martin。
一般学ABC的绘本,多半都是重在字型的描述,很少能把它写成一本有故事情节的书,简单而色彩丰富的图片,加上朗朗上口的韵文,让孩子很容易就学会了ABC。

a告诉b , b 告诉 c ,
"我们到椰子树上碰面喔"
"好啊好啊" d 跟 e f g 说,
"我会比你们先到的!"

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom 的故事就从这里开始啰

这一群 a b c 的小罗卜头啊,就一个接着一个爬上了椰子树
一棵椰子树挤得下这么多小朋友吗 ? 所以最后.......通通掉下来了
妈妈爸爸叔叔阿姨 (大写 ABC..) 都赶过来了,小罗卜头有的眼睛变黑青了,有的牙齿掉了,有的撞弯了腿的......
大人们好心疼喔,把BB搂在怀里拍拍他们裤子上的灰尘
可是啊~虽然摔的鼻青脸肿,小罗卜头还是一样的爱玩,到了晚上月亮出来了,小 a 又悄悄溜下床爬上了椰子树.........
光看故事就很有趣了吧!
全文是这样的:

A told B, and B told C,
"l'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree."
"Whee!" said D to E F G,
"I'll beat you to the top of the coconut tree."
Chicka chicka boom boom !

Will there be enough room ?
Here comes H
up the coconut tree,
and I and J
and tag-along K,
all on their way
up the coconut tree.

Chicka chicka boom boom !
Will there be enough room ?

Look who's coming !
L M N O P.
And Q R S !
And T U V !
Still more - W !
And X Y Z !

The whole alphabet
up the - Oh, no !
Chicka chicka ...
BOOM !
BOOM !
Skit skat skoodle doot.

Flip flop flee.
Everybody running to the coconut tree.
Skit skat skoodle doot.

Mamas and Papas
and uncles and aunts
hug their little dears,
then dust their pants.

"Help us up,"
cried A B C
Next from the pileup skinned-knee D
and stubbed-toe E and patched-up F.

Then comes G all out of breath.
H is tangled up with I.
J and K are about to cry.
L is knotted like a tie.
M is looped.
N is stooped.
O is twisted alley-oop.
Skit skat skoodle doot.
Flip flop flee.

Look who's coming!
It's black-eyed P,
Q R S,
and loose-tooth T.
Then U V W
wiggle-jiggle free.
Last to come
X Y Z.

And the sun goes down
on the coconut tree...
But---
chika chika boom boom!

Look, there's a full moon.
A is out of bed,
and this is what he said,
"Dare double dare,
you can't catch me!"
"I'll beat you to the top
of the coconut tree."
Chika Chika BOOM BOOM!

#25: The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton (1942)

图片

For the flowing intergenerational connectedness of life, history, and the seasons. – Jeff Faville

I remember Captain Kangaroo had feature in his program where he read children's books. That is where I first was introduced to the book. Then I couldn't believe it when as a visit to my branch library in Brooklyn I found it! That must have been the reason I became a librarian and into historic preservation. Hope it makes the list. It needs a revival. – Rocco Staino


If you had sat me down, placed The Little House and Mike Mulligan in front of me side-by-side, and asked me to pick which one of the two would make it into the Top 25, the answer would have been Mike all that way. I love me my Little House but certainly when I was growing up Mr. Mulligan had the most sway. After all, 100 Best Books for Children says that of all her books, Ms. Burton's, "greatest contribution to the American landscape remains the saga of Mary Anne and Mike Mulligan." Not anymore, it seems. Certainly when one takes into account the current housing crises and the various dilapidated and forgotten homes around the country, the tale of The Little House has a lot more to say to us than that of a guy building a basement. Plus it has the extra added advantage of featuring a house that's just as depressed about its situation as its occupants would be.

The plot from my review: "Long ago a little house was built in the country. The man who built her decided that this house, special as it was, could never be bought and sold. Instead, he planned on leaving it to his children, his children's children, and his children's children's children. Etc. The house was pleased with the arrangement. It watched the seasons go by. It watched the children that played in it grow up and move away. It even watched the changing fashions and modes of transportation. Horse and buggies one day, automobiles the next. This is all well and good until a new asphalt road appears. Suddenly it's a heckuva lot easier for people to reach the area in which the little house lives. Things get faster and suddenly the little house is surrounded by tenement houses. Then there are trolley cars (oh the trolley cars). Next comes elevated trains, and subways, and (worst of all) gigantic skyscrapers on either side of the now seriously dilapidated little house. One day, a descendent of the original owner sees the house and inquires after it. Since it turns out she owns it (I guess... the book's a little shaky on the legal aspects of ownership at this point) the house is summarily picked up by movers and taken to the country she loves so much. Happy house. Happy family. The end."

Just prior to writing The Little House, Burton actually attempted to write a book that can only be described as far and away ahead of her time. In the late 30s, early 40s she noticed that her nine-year-old son loved his comic books. The answer? Calico the Wonder Horse; or, The Saga of Stewy Slinker was an honest-to-goodness picture book in a comic-book format. As Minders of Make-Believe puts it, the book was a "gallant though futile gesture." The Little House was made soon thereafter and got itself a Caldecott Medal in 1943, so there you go.

And then, of course, there was the Disney animated short of the same.
