Marc Brown, who was born in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1946, received great encouragement and support from his grandmother and uncle. Inspired by the books of Maurice Sendak, Brown decided to pursue his ambition of becoming an illustrator. After receiving a B.F.A. in painting from the Cleveland Institute of Art, he worked as a TV art director, a professor of mechanical drawing, and a freelance illustrator, before becoming a writer. In his books, he addresses the fears and problems which children face and events like friendship, family, school and pets. For his illustrations, Brown uses pencil with watercolor on a variety of papers to achieve different visual effects. The "Arthur" series, about the everyday adventures of a lovable aardvark, began in 1976 and continues to this day with 25 titles published. Brown has also created other series such as the "Rhymes" series, and the nonfiction "Dinosaur" series, which conveys messages of do's and don'ts. These series, like the stories of Arthur, hold the attention of young children while transporting their imaginations on magical journeys.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2 Arthur the aardvark's younger sister returns in true D. W. fashion. She's obstinate, whiney, and totally irresistibleto Arthur and to his fans. Here the family is at the beach, and D. W. is determined to let every one know how miserable she is. She hates the beach, the water, the sun everything about the experience, until a wise and loving older brother forcefully coaxes her into the water. Families of rabbits and aardvarks bask in the sun or take shelter under colorful beach um brellas; children (except D. W.) build castles, swim, or play in the water. All the while, D. W. remains high and dryuntil the very end. The book is so expertly conceived that non-readers will be able to follow every moment of D. W.'s day, from unhappiness to de light. Youngsters will predict the end ing, but they'll still love seeing her about-face and relate to her fear of the unknown. D. W. and Arthur at the beachthey're sure to make a big splash with the preschool crowd as well as with beginning readers. Trev Jones, ``School Library Journal ''
