More About Marc Brown


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."

Reviews - What do customers think about Arthur's Fire Drill (Step into Reading)?

D.W. Learns Fire Safety  May 24, 2008
This is a great book for toddlers, as starting point for fire safety. It'd make an excellent tie in for fire safety day, when the fire department makes an appearance at their school.
From working with a group of preschoolers, on fire safety day, it became clear they were frightened. Though the firemen tried not to scare them, many still were. This book would've been the ticket!!!!
 
Excellent Fire Safety Story  Apr 11, 2002
When I picked this book up from the library, I was worried that it might just be a book version of episode from the episode "D.W. All Fired Up" on the "Arthur" television series. Fortunately, it isn't. It's a unique and beautifully illustrated story about fire safety that teaches children what they need to know and also manages to entertain in the process. D.W. fans will love seeing D.W. in her firefighter's hat as the "fire boss" as well as when she was just a little baby. The story is generally kept pleasant throughout, without arguing between Arthur and D.W. It also has a surprising and satisfying ending.
 
Great fire safety tips for preschoolers!  Oct 28, 2000
This book teaches a lot of important saftey steps in the event of a fire. My preschool child really enjoys the book and had fun placing the stickers on the appropriate spots. The only drawback is that not enough room is allowed for the stickers, making it impossible to see all the words once the stickers are in place.
