Review This collection of six Arthur adventures is read by author/illustrator Marc Brown, a fine narrator whose pleasant voice expresses affection for his delightful characters, from pesky little sister D.W. to Arthur himself. The production includes entertaining sound effects--listeners will hear a puppy's bark and the laughter of friends. Stories are introduced by the Arthur song, familiar to TV-watchers, with a verse synopsizing each story's content.... The stories all provide great examples of Brown's gentle humor and empathetic insights into childhood dilemmas. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
