Marc Brown reads an excerpt from Arthur Turns Green.

You can draw Arthur, too.

Marc Brown hides his children's names in his illustrations.

"I never imagined Arthur being more than one book; and I never imagined this whole process – this great adventure that Arthur has taken me on, lasting for almost thirty years now; and all the stories that would emege from Arthur; and, because of the transition to television, how intimate his world would become, and how complex." -Marc Brown.
