Marc Brown is the creator of the bestselling Arthur Adventure book series and co-developer of the children's PBS television series, Arthur. He has also created a second book series, featuring D.W., Arthur's little sister, as well as numerous other books for children.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-In this 21st series entry, Arthur is duped by slick TV advertising into buying an expensive Treat Timer for his dog Pal. Using his hard-earned money for the purchase, he is disillusioned when the machine shoots treats all over the living room, frightening Pal in the process, and he vows never to be taken in again. However, he seriously considers the newly advertised Magic Disappearing Box for his know-it-all sister D.W. Brown's full-color cartoons reveal all of the ins and outs of contemporary American family life. D.W. guards her own piggy bank from Arthur's project, but helps him gather newspapers that have blown all over the neighborhood (continually offering unwanted advice, of course). Dad spends five hours with complicated instructions assembling the device, while baby sister delights in the mayhem! Fans will welcome another Arthur adventure.?Claudia Cooper, Ft.
