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:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-Author Marc Brown's reading of Arthur's Chicken Pox is lively entertainment for listeners. Introduced by a song sung by kids, this adventure revolves around whether or not Arthur will get over his chicken pox in time to go to the circus with his family. In the meantime, D.W. makes her own plans to invite a friend to go as Arthur's replacement, and feigns chicken pox herself in a bid for attention from her family. At the end of the story, in a nod to justice, Arthur recovers in time, but D.W. comes down with spots on the morning of the circus. Equally entertaining is Brown's reading of Arthur's First Sleepover. The possibility of aliens making an appearance during Arthur's campout with his friends adds to the excitement. Of course, D.W. is making her own preparations to provide an alien so the boys won't be disappointed. Once again, humor abounds with Arthur's efforts to get even. Listeners will delight in hearing Mar Brown's interpretation of the characters and enjoy these stories with their predictable and satisfying endings.
