I discovered this book while doing research on banned and challenged books. It has been many years since I've read an Arthur book, or watched the show on PBS, but I was always intrigued by this friendly aardvark and his friends, so I decided to give it a go.

In this chapter book, Arthur is so excited to read the latest installment in the Scare Your Pants Off Book Club, he forgoes homemade waffles on a Saturday morning to rush to the library to get in line for the book. Upon arrival he is shocked

We really enjoyed this book in the Arthur chapter book series. It was a fairly quick read and we read it in one night's storytime. It's about books and the library, so how can you go wrong? I like that he was standing up for what he felt was right and taking action, rather than just complaining about the situation.
Arthur learns to stand up for himself when his favorite books are trying to be banned by the PAWS (Parents Against Weird Stories) group. The message is that reading is good and sometimes people who try to ban books just don't know what they're talking about.

This is a cute book about a group of friends love for a certain series of books. I believe kids would enjoy reading this.

This book is funny and Arthur is up to his usual good natured self. He helps his friends organize a rally against a book ban on their favorite books. The chapters are short and sweet we highly recommend this book.

Another book in the boxes gifted to us from my sister. Beetle should be ready for this soon.
I didn't love the book but I kept reading it to see what happened next.
I like that this book teaches kids that they can make a difference.
