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."

A great read aloud around Valentine's Day Mar 16, 2003
Arthur and Francine are square dancing partners in gym class. They really like dancing together. Arthur's friends begin to think that Francine likes him, because she does nice things for Arthur like giving him her favorite baseball glove. Arthur begins to believe his friends and he distances himself from Francine. The way Arthur is avoiding Francine, causes her friends to think Arthur is in love with her. She begins to distance herself from Arthur. They both get new dancing partners. When they finally confront each other, they figure out their true feelings. I am a kindergarten/first grade teacher. I read this book to my class around Valentine's Day. It is a great book for students this age. I think the students really like this book because at this age they are teased a lot about liking girls or boys. They can relate to Arthur and Francine in this book.
