More About Marc Brown
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.-

Arthur Goes To Camp Apr 22, 2008
While attending a session at the Double "H" Ranch in upstate, NY, I found this book. At the time the Ranch allowed children the opportunity to take one book home. To this day, I still have this book, and love to read it! While the focus is on Arthur's loneliness,is a common feeling for young people in many situations. Arthur learns being away isn't all bad. A new adventure's around the corner for Arthur, and his pals!

Homesickness Dec 10, 2003
This book tells about the time Arthur's parents decided to send him off to camp. Arthur isn't sure he wants to go, and is a bit homesick. The children at camp play pranks like setting off smoke bombs, putting frogs in people's beds, and hiding their clothes. Arthur writes home postcards about how lonely he is. He still manages to enjoy himself somewhat, however, when he helps his team win the intercamp scavenger hunt. Arthur fans may get a kick out of this book, as well as kids who dream of going to summer camp. The book about 700 words.
Arthur goes to camp Oct 6, 2003
This was a great book. It was about-facing fears and doing something you don't think you would like. Arthur has to go to camp and he thinks its horrible then he gets there and it starts out bad then gets better as soon as they figure out whose trying to scare them. They end up scaring them right back and winning the scavenger hunt and he has a great time. I think this is for ages 5-10. It teaches kids know matter how bad u may think something is it may not turn out so bad.
Arthur Goes To Camp Oct 3, 2003
In this book Arthur's parents send him to a summer camp with a few of his friends. Arthur wasn't pleased with the idea of spending a summer at camp and it seemed to only get worse. When spooky thing starting happening, the campers decided to investigate, and find out who had been playing the tricks on them, and at the same time, have fun. The book wasn't a bad read, kids between the ages of 3 and 5 would most likely enjoy it.
