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."

Reviews - What do customers think about Arthur's Eyes: An Arthur Adventure (Arthur Adventure Series)?
A fan of the original artwork... Apr 13, 2008
I have to say that I grew up with the orginal artwork and was very sad when I saw one of my favorite books had been modernized to the PBS version of Arthur instead of when he was an arrdvark. So I, unlike others, was very pleased when I opened the book and realized it was the orginal artwork and not the homogeneous version of Arthur. To all who think it's bad art: it's just a different style than what you are used to seeing. But that doesn't make it bad. However, I can appreciate thinking you're going to see something you're familiar with and seeing something completely different. So I do sympathize with you in that.
New Glasses Oct 31, 2006
I read Arthur's Eyes. I think you should read this book because there is a funny surprise in the middle of the book. In this book, Arthur gets glasses. My favorite part is when he tries on glasses. This part was funny because some of the glasses looked funny on Arthur. I liked this book.
Arthur's Eyes by Justina Dec 4, 2005
Arthur's Eyes was a good example of how your treated when you look different from others. Although everyone is the same and equal, and thats how the teacher treated Arthur,equally.
Great book Aug 3, 2005
I bought this for my 5-year old so that she would have some point of reference for starting school and POSSIBLY dealing with teasing about wearing glasses. Great book. We already had a lot of Arthur books and have occassionally watched him on PBS, so she's slightly familiar with him. Reading about what he tried and went through really helped her think about people teasing others about being different. We already had an OLD Arthur book (Arthur's Nose) so she knew what the OLD Arthur looked like, but I was still slightly disappointed to have the cover picture be of the NEW Arthur.
Arthur's Eyes Sep 26, 2003
This book was about a boy named Arthur who has to get glasses. The next day at school his classmates and friends for wearing glasses tease him. He starts telling his teacher that he forgot his glasses at home. The lesson this book teaches that it's okay to be different and not to care about what others think of you. The age level of this book is about from ages 5-8. I thought this book was good because all children need to learn that it's okay to be different.
