Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyPW described Arthur the aadvark's 19th adventure as "another winning slice-of-life tale." Ages 4-8. (Apr.)
Children's Literature - Marla FrenzelArthur is at it again in the twenty-first book in the "Arthur Adventure" series. In this one, Arthur is bombarded by ads for the Treat Timer. He is finally determined to buy one for his dog, Pal, but he must first find a way to pay for it. He encounters trouble along the way, but finally earns enough to buy the Treat Timer. Pal does not quite appreciate the new gadget, however, and is actually afraid of it. Feeling frustrated, Arthur vows never to fall for ads on TV again. Children will identify with wanting whatever they see on TV, perhaps Aurthur's experience will make them stop and think more clearly. They will also be tickled by the ending, which involves a magic disappearing box and a sister.
