Author Notes

Author and illustrator, Marc Brown was born in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1946. He attended the Cleveland Institute of Art. After college, he worked numerous odd jobs before he began his career.

He is most renown for creating the Arthur series. The idea for Arthur, the aardvark came one night while telling his son a bedtime story. The first title in the series was "Arthur's Nose" written in 1976. Since then, Brown has written over thirty books in the Arthur Adventure series. D. W., Arthur's sister was another character created by Brown. In addition to writing, Brown also developed the Arthur television series on PBS.

Booklist Review

Ages 3^-5. Sent to her room after grabbing a toy from her baby sister, D. W. finds the 10-minute timeout interminable. But when her mother asks her to watch baby Kate for a minute, the sulking D. W. is quickly won over by her smiling sister's offer of a pacifier. It's a quick fix for sibling troubles and a sweet ending for the story, but even preschoolers know that problems are seldom so easily resolved. Still, the story is simple, the pictures are deftly drawn, and any new picture book about these popular characters will be in demand for the foreseeable future. Buy accordingly. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-D.W. is back, and this time she is being punished for pinching her baby sister and snatching her block. While banished to her room for 10 minutes, D.W. begins to feel sorry for herself, believing that she is being treated as a slave by her family and fearing that she may starve before her punishment is up. When Mother brings Kate to D.W.'s room to be watched, D.W. at first resents the additional chore foisted upon her, but soon she and Kate are playing happily, and dinnertime comes too soon. Once again, Brown captures the essence of family dynamics in words and pictures, showing the youngster's self-pity, frustration, and eventual happiness with life in general.-Kathy M.
