Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Arthur, the lovable aardvark, has been around for 25 years! He's certainly changed over the years, and this anniversary edition of the first Arthur Adventure shows readers how. Here's the terrific, classic story of Arthur's search for a new nose -- with lots of extras. This special edition also includes brand-new pages of fun facts about Arthur and all his friends, a letter from author Marc Brown describing the evolution of Arthur, as well as photos from Brown's personal archives, and more. It's a must-have for every Arthur fan!
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
They're Back! Everyone's favorite aardvark returns to celebrate a quarter-century of success in Arthur's Nose: 25th Anniversary Limited Edition by Marc Brown. As a prologue to this first story in which Arthur starred, Brown shows the evolution of his drawings of Arthur from 1976 to the present, along with a sidebar of "Fun Facts" (e.g., "D.W. has an imaginary friend named Nadine"), followed by a photo gallery of Brown's family with some pretty clear correlations between the author's relatives and Arthur's. Aspiring writers and artists also get a peek at the original manuscript and sketches for Arthur's Nose. (Little, Brown, $15.95 40p ages 4-8 ISBN 0-316-11884-2; Apr.) For story hour, Little House in the Big Woods: Special Read-Aloud Edition by Laura Ingalls Wilder, illus. by Garth Williams, expands its trim size (to 8 U x 10 7/8") and type size but retains the classic charcoal drawings and the famous tale of Laura and her pioneer family living in the Big Woods of Wisconsin. ( Apr.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Arthur, the aardvark star of 75 books and a TV show, got his start as a bedtime story told by Marc Brown to his young son. Luckily, Brown had both the writing and illustrating skills to bring Arthur to life on the page in 1976. This season Arthur's 25th birthday is being celebrated with the publishing, in a limited edition, of the story that started it all—Arthur's Nose. Brown includes some fascinating front matter sure to appeal to kids interested in the writing/illustrating process: a double-page scrapbook featuring Brown's and Arthur's families, a copy of the original manuscript and sketches, and an Arthur "gallery," showing how the little critter has changed over the years. 2001 (orig. 1976), Little Brown, $15.95. Ages 4 to 9. Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum

    Arthur's Nose

    Why does Arthur not like his nose? What new nose will Arthur get and what will his friends think of it? To find out, you have to read this book! This book is hilarious! My favorite part was when Arthur's nose was bugging Francene. Arthur's nose turned red when he was sick, and his sister laughed at him. Arthur has to get medicine for his nose.
