Davey: "This was OK. One thing I learned was that one guy that is not on a team and says the strikes and what is happening is called an umpire. One thing I liked in the book was that Arthur learned how to catch the ball. You put the glove above your face so the sun doesn't get in your eyes and where the ball will land and you catch it. One thing I didn't like in the book was that the other team, Penguins, won."
Arthur is sweet and his parents are great. The theme is nice and my kids liked it. Some parts are strange though, like the baseball coach taking the kids out for icecream AND soda after baseball practice. Weird.
Marc Tolon Brown is perhaps best known for his Arthur series of children's books.
He lives on Martha's Vineyard and in New York City with his wife, Laurie Krasny Brown. He has three children, sons Tolon and Tucker, and daughter Eliza. The names of his two sons have been hidden in all of the Arthur books except for one: Arthur's Tooth.
