About Arthur - Books
First published in the 1970s, the Arthur books quickly became a phenomenon that expanded into a very successful TV show, as well as toys, phone apps, and e-books. Arthur is an aardvark who loves reading. He lives with his mother, father, and two little sisters. Though Arthur may be harassed sometimes for his glasses and love of reading, he has a wide circle of friends, including his alien-believing best friend Buster; Brain, the top student of the class; Francine, the sports-loving tomboy; and many more. One of the longest-running children's animated shows ever, Arthur encourages reading, learning, and curiosity in kids, and teaches lessons about friendship, family, and life in general. You can pick from dozens of different Arthur books on eBay, or get a new or used Arthur DVD to enjoy the colorful, entertaining episodes of the show. With six Emmy awards under its belt, plus an additional 25 nominations, Arthur shows that it transitions well from page to screen with its thoughtful storylines, realistic character interactions, and useful moral lessons.
