About the Author:

Marc Brown is the creator of the bestselling Arthur Adventure book series and creative producer of the number-one 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. Marc Brown lives with his family in Tisbury, Martha's Vineyard.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3?Another installment in Arthur's everyday adventures. When his teacher asks the students to write a story about something that is important to them, everyone's favorite aardvark cheerfully writes about how he got his dog (told in Arthur's Pet Business [Little, 1990]). But when his sister comments that the story is dull, he changes it. Each person he talks to gives him different advice, so worried Arthur keeps adding and changing. On the day the assignment is due, his contrived and confusing tale elicits a negative response. When he tells his original story, he receives a gold star and applause. Brown's watercolor-and-ink illustrations feature a rounder-faced Arthur surrounded by a lighter and brighter world of home and school. A lesson of being true to oneself that newly independent readers can easily handle.?Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY

Book Description Little, Brown Company, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. What makes a story entertaining? That s the question Arthur asks himself when Mr. Ratburn gives a creative writing assignment to his class. When D.W. yawns through Arthur s first story, he worries that his tale isn t exciting enough. Is the setting too humdrum? Maybe he needs to research his subject more thoroughly. Or perhaps humour is the key to creating a lively tale! With every new angle, Arthur s story takes one more hilarious step further away from his original idea - but is the end result really the tale he wants to tell?.
