Overview

Editorial Reviews

From 1976 to 2002, Marc Brown gifted his fans with an average of more than one Arthur new book a year, but then his cute anthropomorphic aardvark hero seemed to slip into bibliographic hibernation. For nine years, readers have waited (and new readers appeared) until TV star Arthur finally reemerges in Arthur Turns Green, bathed in a bright new color: green. Energized by a newfound environmental consciousness, our plucky bespectacled mammal searches for ways that he can help make our planet a better place to live. As Arthur hunts for energy saving projects, some of his friends become concerned that he might be turning green—literally. (P.S. Aardvarks are great sleepers, but they don't hibernate. That was a metaphor.)
