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 4^-6. When Arthur's mother learns that his teacher's roof has collapsed in a snowstorm, she invites Mr. Ratburn to stay in their home. At first Arthur worries about what Mr. Ratburn will think of him. Later, labeled teacher's pet and ostracized by his classmates, he's more concerned about losing his friends. Mr. Ratburn solves the problem, though, when he announces that he'll be moving on to the homes of his other students. Cartoon-style ink-and-watercolor pictures illustrate the story with style. Some children will be as surprised as D. W. to learn that the teacher doesn't live at school, while others will hardly recognize Mr. Ratburn in jeans and a T-shirt. Though "adapted by Marc Brown from a teleplay by Joe Fallon," this is an entertaining addition to a popular series. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Arthur can't imagine anything worse than having his teacher move into his house, and his response is understandable: "It's just plain wrong.-It goes against nature!" However, that's just what happens when Mr. Ratburn's snow-laden roof caves in, and Arthur's parents kindly open their home to him while it is being repaired. The young aardvark worries that the other kids will think he is becoming too friendly with Mr. Ratburn, as well as how to best impress him. D.W.'s candor and misnomers (she never quite gets Mr. Ratburn's name right) add humor to the story. Of course, by book's end, Arthur's preconceived notions about his teacher are proven unfounded, and, in fact, he's in for a few surprises. Arthur, D.W., Francine and the rest of the familiar cast appear in another winning story, twist and lesson intact.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI (c) Copyright 2010.
