5 Stars “Fun, poignant, and brilliantly illustrated. I loved this book when I was a 5 year old some 30 years ago, and now my son loves it also. It's fun and clever, and the illustrations hark back to a different era when 6-color printing wasn't necessary to hold a child's attention--this one uses just two colors--and yet the illustrations are wonderful. Of course, I may be a bit biased because my name is Arthur!”
5 Stars “One of those rare books that you ask me to read again and again! Arthur often frustrates his mom, but he's not trying to-- he's just being Arthur! You related so well to Arthur with his stubborn, forgetful, picky but ultimately big hearted ways. This is almost the story of you as a child :)”
