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 Valentine (Arthur Adventure Series)?

A Simpler Arthur Book - a review of "Arthur's Valentine"  Nov 16, 2006
This Arthur book has less text and a simpler story than some of the others we have read, such as "Arthur's Thanksgiving".

As is suggested by the "card catalog" review, confusion abounds when Arthur receives mystery valentines. In the process of guessing wrong, and having his valentines blown all over the school yard, Arthur is teased for having a girl friend.

Unlike other Arthur books there is no strong moral behind the story, and the characters aren't shown that teasing is wrong. Instead Arthur finds out who his mystery admirer is when he receives a movie ticket. The book ends sweetly (I guess?!) when Arthur goes to the theater, finds out who his admirer is, and leaves after promising a kiss. [He delivers multiple kisses in the form of Hersey's chocolate kisses and a heart card.]

Three Stars. Cute book. Okay artwork. Okay Read-aloud. Not a great deal of concept here, but we are talking about valentines day.
 
A good Valentine's Day story!  Feb 24, 2006
I like all the Arthur books. Marc Brown is an awesome author and illustrator. His books are really funny. They are perfect for kids ages 4 to 10.
 
Book Review for Arthur's Valentine  Mar 10, 2003
I liked the book because i can remember the first valentine that i received from a girl. I was happy like Arthur was, but didn't want everyone to know about it. In the story, Arthur gets a valentine from his secret admirer. He didn't know yet who it exactly was. He gets another one from the same person. The second one says for him to meet her at the movies. If you read this story, you will find out who sent him the valentine.
 
Teasing should be ignored.  Dec 30, 1997
When people tease you about things, it is best to ignore them and keep focused on your goal. I enjoyed this book very much.
