More About Marc Tolon Brown, Jan Packer, Beverly Stoeltje, Alison Morrison-Low, Florian Leiber, Jose Cabot & Tim Ohr

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Marc Brown is best known as the author and illustrator who created the beloved aardvark Arthur. This popular character was born one night over twenty years ago, when Brown was telling his oldest son, Tolon, a bedtime story. Most of the stories he told were about animals, but that night the story just happened to be about an aardvark. Brown has written and illustrated more than fifty Arthur and D.W. (Arthur's little sister) books since then. He has also illustrated twelve other books with his wife--author, illustrator, and psychologist Laurie Krasny Brown.
As a child, Marc Brown's passion for drawing was encouraged by his grandmother Thora, who saved his artwork in the bottom drawer of her bureau. -I knew it must be special, - recalls Brown, -because she didn't save many things.- His grandmother later provided an education fund that helped Brown pay for art school. He attended the Cleveland Institute of Art from 1964 to 1969.
Grandma Thora is just one person in Marc Brown's life who has afforded the inspiration for one of his characters. Many other characters are based on children he knew while he was growing up and going to school in Mill Creek, Pennsylvania. His sisters--Bonnie, Colleen, and Kimberly--have all served as models for his characters D.W. and Francine. Brown patterned Buster after Terry Johnson, his best friend in elementary school, while Mr. Ratburn is based on -the meanest algebra teacher ever.-
Brown was born in 1946 in Erie, Pennsylvania. Before he created the Arthur series, he worked at a variety of jobs, including stints as a truck driver, short-order cook, college professor, soda jerk, actor, chicken farmer, and television art director. Now, in addition to developing the Arthur television series on PBS, Brown continues to create new books both for Random House Children's Publishing and Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
Marc Brown lives in Hingham, Massachusetts, and Martha's Vineyard with Laurie and their young daughter, Eliza. He also has two grown sons, Tolon and Tucker. Brown looks to his three children for inspiration and story ideas. He also gets many suggestions from children he meets in schools, libraries, and bookstores around the country. -The most interesting--and the funniest--things, - Brown says, -happen in real life.-

Marc Brown has published or released items in the following series...
  1. Arthur Adventures (Paperback)
  2. Dino Life Guides for Families
  3. Marc Brown Arthur Chapter Books (Paperback)
  4. Step Into Reading Sticker Books (Paperback)

Reviews - What do our customers think?
My favorite Arthur book--also made a good episode  Jan 26, 2007
A very cute book that tells the story of Arthur, an 8 year old ardvark whose birthday party is the same day as his friend Muffy's. After the boys and girls initally side with their own kind, Arthur has the idea to give Muffy a surprise party.
In regards to the 'spin the bottle' complaints, I had no problem with it as a kid, and considering they don't actually play (the joke is that Francine wants to play at all, being the tomboyish girl of the group) I don't think it's going to traumatize anyone.
 
A Birthday At Arthur's House  Oct 31, 2006
I like this book because it is Arthur and Muffy's birthday. It reminds me of when I was in first grade. I had the same birthday as someone else. I like Marc Brown. My favorite part is when they surprised Muffy by hiding in different places in Arthur's house. I think you should read this book because it's a good book.
 
Spin-the-Bottle for 4-year-olds?  Oct 21, 2006
The story itself is fairly benign, but when you have to start explaining the what, why, and wherefore of spin-the-bottle to your 4-year-old, things get a little sticky. Why would the author and publisher want to insert such content--which would resonate more with the 12-14 year-old crowd--into a book for 4-8 year olds? Also, it reduces a wonderful boy-girl friendship into the "standard" sexual attraction relationship. There's enough of that on TV geared toward young kids. Why not let them enjoy simple sincere friendships for another few blissful years?
 
It's cute  Jan 13, 2004
I've started reading Arthur's books to my sons and they love the colorful pictures in the book. The storyline is cute ~~ nothing spectular or exciting. Arthur invites everyone to his birthday party only to find out one of his friends, Muffy, has her birthday party the same day. Arthur decided to surprise Muffy by hosting the party at his house and all ends well.

It's a cute story though I am not quite sure about "Spin the Bottle" gift at the end. That may be a little too old for 8 year olds. But it's not offensive or anything ~~ it's just a cute story about birthday parties.

Suprise Birthday  Dec 17, 2003
I really like the book Arthur's Birthday because I liked when Arthur figured out what to do when Muffy and his birthday are on the same day. He was kind and knew what he was doing.
