About the Author:

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-- In this latest book about Arthur, the aardvark wins an essay contest, and he, his class, and his family are invited to Washington, D. C. to meet the president at a special ceremony. Unfortunately, Arthur has to memorize his essay and is too nervous to enjoy the preparations for the big event. In Washington, the class catches glimpses of the Jefferson Memorial, Washington Monument, and the National Museum of Natural History. Then it's on to the White House. But Arthur's carefully prepared notes are blown away by the presidential helicopter; in the somewhat flat and abrupt ending, sister D. W. saves the day by hanging upside down in a tree while holding the text of the speech. The bright, full-color illustrations are lively, and Brown portrays the emotions and facial expressions of the characters well. While the book is definitely not as strong an entry as others in the series, teachers and parents looking for easy fiction on the presidency and Washington will want this; kids, as always, will want the newest of Arthur's stories. --Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI
