Arthur's Baby by Marc Brown


Arthur's Baby by Marc Brown

We have a surprise for you,' Arthur's parents tell him. Arthur can hardly believe it when he learns what the surprise is - a baby! D.W. seems enthusiastic but Arthur isn't so sure. What will life with a new baby be like? Will it be as bad as his friends say?


Like its predecessors, Arthur's Baby deals reassuringly with a developmental issue. And like those earlier books, the humor lies in the colorful, sunny illustrations (pen, crayon, and wash), as well as the witty banter between siblings. Combined with a simple, direct style, this has sure-fire appeal for the primary grade set, as well as Arthur addicts of all ages. It should also be of special interest to families expecting a new arrival. --School Library Journal
