Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Arthur's homework assignment is to write a story. He does this with great enthusiasm. He writes about how he got his puppy. His sister, D.W., is not impressed. Arthur modifies his story to include some of his sister's and friend's ideas. He gets so carried away that he includes a song and dance. When he tries it out on his family, they are a little confused. At school, his friends and teacher give him some good advice and he realizes that his original story idea was really a very good one.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3Another installment in Arthur's everyday adventures. When his teacher asks the students to write a story about something that is important to them, everyone's favorite aardvark cheerfully writes about how he got his dog (told in Arthur's Pet Business [Little, 1990]). But when his sister comments that the story is dull, he changes it. Each person he talks to gives him different advice, so worried Arthur keeps adding and changing. On the day the assignment is due, his contrived and confusing tale elicits a negative response. When he tells his original story, he receives a gold star and applause. Brown's watercolor-and-ink illustrations feature a rounder-faced Arthur surrounded by a lighter and brighter world of home and school. A lesson of being true to oneself that newly independent readers can easily handle.Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY
