About the Author
Marc Brown, who was born in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1946, received great encouragement and support from his grandmother and uncle. Inspired by the books of Maurice Sendak, Brown decided to pursue his ambition of becoming an illustrator. After receiving a B.F.A. in painting from the Cleveland Institute of Art, he worked as a TV art director, a professor of mechanical drawing, and a freelance illustrator, before becoming a writer. In his books, he addresses the fears and problems which children face and events like friendship, family, school and pets. For his illustrations, Brown uses pencil with watercolor on a variety of papers to achieve different visual effects. The "Arthur" series, about the everyday adventures of a lovable aardvark, began in 1976 and continues to this day with 25 titles published. Brown has also created other series such as the "Rhymes" series, and the nonfiction "Dinosaur" series, which conveys messages of do's and don'ts. These series, like the stories of Arthur, hold the attention of young children while transporting their imaginations on magical journeys.

Cute storyReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on December 7, 2020
Love this book but didn’t realize Grandma Thora’s dogs name is killer in the series. I don’t recall ever watching an Arthur episode and hearing. We just changed the name since we didn’t really like that word when reading it to a young child.

Arthur Christmas bookReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on June 5, 2021
Arthur Christmas book is what I remember as a child
Dull ready. Not nearly as good as other Arthur booksReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 2, 2020
The plot and story were slightly dull. The book struggled to keep my child’s attention. And he really likes the other Arthur books.
