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.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Arthur the aardvark's little sister can't wait until she can write her full name (Dora Winifred Read) so that she can get a library card. However, when she finally gets it, she is so afraid of damaging the book she checks out and having her borrowing privileges taken away that instead of reading it, she puts it in a safe place until it is due. Luckily, her big brother is around to show her that she can take good care of her library books and enjoy them at the same time. This title will be great during National Library Card Sign-up Month in September or just about anytime at all. Brown's ever-familiar crayon sketches have the same appeal as those in all of the previous books.-Rachel Fox, Port Washington Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
