Meet the Writers
Two things suggest that Arthur, the loveable star of children’s books and the PBS series, may not be so fictitious after all: 1) Kids are known to call Marc Brown’s house looking for their bespectacled friend and 2) Brown’s third grade class picture -- according to many, a dead-ringer for the aardvark himself. In our interview, Brown talks about his writing process, including his "idea drawer" -- a special place where he stores pieces of inspirational information.
