Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Brown's 16th adventure starring the affable aardvark has the bespectacled fellow take on his first babysitting job. Of course he has had experience looking after his sisters, D. W. and Kate, but they are less of a challenge than the terrible Tibble twins. Though D. W. telephones to coach her brother, the feisty, cowboy-suited twins almost get the best of their frenzied sitter. But luckily Arthur calls on his colorful imagination to come up with the story of a horrible, big, slimy, stinky green swamp thing who prowls around searching for his favorite meal-twin boys. Suddenly subdued, both youngsters take cover in Arthur's safe lap, where their pleasantly surprised grandmother finds them on her return. Typically loaded with kid appeal, Brown's tale is simple and satisfying. Little ones will savor the action-filled pictures depicting the riotous chaos caused by Arthur's charges. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Arthur is going to babysit for the Tibble, or is that Terrible twins. The boys are truly a handful, and Arthur doesn't seem to be in control. The phone calls and advice from D.W. aren't much help either. But clever Arthur starts to tell a spooky story and soon the boys are sitting a close as they can. The timing is perfect, because their Mama arrives home and praises Arthur's babysitting skills. The pictures are full of energy and fun and work well in this new board book version. This Arthur story is also available in hard and soft cover.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3School and public librarians know how hard it is to keep Marc Brown's Arthur books on the shelf. The adventures of this comical aardvark have a timeless appeal to children. These book-and-tape packages are read by the author and move along at a good pace. Music and sound effects enhance the stories without being obtrusive. The tapes have page-turn signals on one side and none on the other. Brown occasionally adds a descriptive sentence or two to the text in his reading. Each tape begins with a theme song which is too long and not really catchy enough to encourage singing along. This is a minor drawback to an otherwise well-produced series.-Peggy J. Latkovich, Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library, OH

Though his sister D. W. and his animal buddies accuse him of taking leave of his senses, anteater Arthur agrees to baby-sit Timmy and Tommy Tibble--twin boy dynamos with a penchant for mischief. On remembering baby Kate's dirty diapers and upset tummy, Arthur actually has some doubts of his own, and what happens when Mrs. Tibble says adieu is the stuff of nightmares. D. W. calls with advice, but it's Arthur's own ingenuity that finally saves the day. The story lacks the freshness of some of Arthur's previous adventures, and the jokes are certainly corny (Arthur, roped into a chair, can't come to the phone because "he's all tied up"), but the book is still likely to elicit some good belly laughs, and kids will love the finale, which puts D. W. in her place. A pleasing addition to Arthur's ongoing adventures, with colorful, energetic art.
