A Summer in the South book.

A Summer in the South book. James Marshall (1942–1992) created dozens of exuberant and captivating books for children, including The Stupids, Miss Nelson Is Missing!, and the ever-popular George and Martha books. Before creating his canon of classic, hilarious children’s books, James Marshall played the viola, studied French, and received a master’s degree from Trinity College.

James Wilson Marshall (October 8, 1810 – August 10, 1885) was an American carpenter and sawmill operator, who reported the finding of gold at Coloma on the American River in California on January 24, 1848, the impetus for the California Gold Rush. The mill property was owned by Johann (John) Sutter who employed Marshall to build his mill. The wave of gold seekers turned everyone's attention away from the mill which eventually fell into disrepair and was never used as intended

Marshall's first "novel" for young readers, a kookie murder mystery, is more like an extended easy reader, with no pretense to the dimension you'd associate with the label even at this level. It takes place at a summer hotel visited by disagreeable Foster Pig, complaining Don Coyote, detective Eleanor Owl and her cat assistant Mr. Paws, Miss Marietta Chicken from the circus, and a family of "cooties" who arrive in the mail in envelope number two. (Envelope number one contains a note alerting the turkey proprietor to their presence.

Kerry James Marshall’s America . Marshall has said, You can’t be born in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1955 and grow up in South Central near the Black Panthers headquarters, and not feel like you’ve got some kind of social responsibility. I went from floor to floor looking at everything, in the same way that in the library I went down the stacks and looked at every art book, without discrimination, he later wrote.

James Edward Marshall (October 10, 1942 – October 13, 1992) was an American illustrator and writer of children's books, probably best known for the George and Martha series of picture books (1972–1988).

Phalaken
Gosh, what would the world be like without James Marshall? I shudder violently to think of it! Oh my, where TO begin? This is a wonderful way to introduce children to mystery stories---with an obvious plotline and easy character deduction. A mystery story for kids, set at the beach in the summertime, with Eleanor Owl and her bud, Mr Paws on vacation----or are they? The story is hilarious, with the characters as the odious flasher Foster Pig, the typical hypochondriac in the story is "Don Coyote," and silly squirrel twins. The Cootie family really IS a cootie family! "Fennimore Cootie" (tee hee) to be precise! Ah, and don't forget the Ladies String Quartet, consisting of large lady baboons.....this book is a must for any kid who will sit still long enough to make it through 27 short (whew!) chapters---but if they are dying of curiousity and they are hooked on the characters, you won't be able to put it down!

and it still has a home on my book case. :) I think this would make a delightful movie, but of course Hollywood would mess it up by adding pop culture references and poop/fart jokes and hiring the celebrities-loudmouth comics of the year/month/week/day/hour/minute/second to do the voices.
I have the 1977 Dell Yearling edition with the more-realistic animals on the cover (it's not James Marshall's illus., IDK who it is, but he still does the interiors.)
I've enjoyed this book even when I was 12--yeah, that's probably above the reading age level, but let me tell you, my older sister read me the Riot Act about reading such books:
"Pigs don't wear pocket watches. Turkeys don't wear monocles. Foxes* don't blow their noses. Ducks* don't serve hors d'oeuvres. Owls don't smoke pipes. Cats don't scratch their chins."

*The 'fox' and 'duck' in question are actually Don Coyote and Maxine the Goose, respectively, but that's what she referred them as. But sheeesh.

I wish James Marshall was still living because I'd love to write him about this. I'm sure he would have gotten a kick out of it.

When I rented this book form the library I had no idea how brilliant it would be! It got me hooked on mystery stories and ever since Ive read all of the Nancy Drew series. Why did it get me hooked? Its amazing illustrations, its realistic (althought animal) characters. I took it on holiday with me and ended up reading it at least 20 times! Eleno Owl is brilliant and I especially love the descriptions of Maxine the cook, cleaner and just about everything else at the small hotel setting for this book!

Like Winnie the Pooh, A Summer in the South is not merely a children's novel. It is instead a wonderful combination of farce and realism, just simple enough to engage a child, just witty enough to amuse an adult. Why this book went out of print, I will never understand. Perhaps because it was never made into a movie...

I loved this book! It was extremely funny, and the pictures add to it. I loved all the characters and the mystery. I give it five stars, definitely!
