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:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 In this newest addition to the popular series about the amiable young aardvark, young listeners soon discover that Arthur's anxiety over his mother's pregnancy is matched only by his crafty sister D. W.'s enthusiasm. While Arthur frets over the many changes a baby will bring to his life, D. W. happily diapers every doll and stuffed toy in the house. When Baby Kate arrives home from the hospital, Doctor D. W. takes charge. But it is Arthur who comes to the rescue when, in his mother's momentary absence, neither his sister nor his friends (familiar to fans of the series) can stop Kate's tears. Arthur does (burping is the remedy). His fears about his new situation are calmed, and he emerges a small hero. Like its predecessors, Arthur's Baby deals reassuringly with a developmental issue. And like those earlier books, the humor lies in the colorful, sunny illustrations (pen, crayon, and wash), as well as the witty banter between siblings. Combined with a simple, direct style, this has sure-fire appeal for the primary grade set, as well as Arthur addicts of all ages. It should also be of special interest to families expecting a new arrival. Julie Corsaro, University of Chicago Laboratory Schools
