Let’s Meet Marc Brown
Marc Brown is the author and illustrator of the famous Arthur books.
Marc was born in 1946 in Erie, Pennsylvania.
When Marc was a boy growing up in Pennsylvania, his Grandma Thora told him stories. He says she was the best storyteller ever! Marc gave Arthur’s Grandma the same name!
Marc began telling stories when his first child, Tolon, was born. He loved to make up bedtime stories for him every night.
One night the story was about an aardvark who did not like his nose, that aardvark became Arthur, and the story, Arthur’s Nose.
Did you notice that Arthur looked very different in that first book? Marc changed Arthur’s look a few times over the years.
Since the first book, Marc has written and illustrated over 30 books about Arthur, his family and friends.
Marc makes the characters in his books like people from his real life. Buster is like Marc’s best friend from elementary school.
D.W. and Francine do some of the same things Marc’s three sisters did while they were growing up.
Marc also uses things that his three children, Tolon, Tucker, and Eliza said and did when they were little to help him come up with story ideas, too.
A fun thing to do while reading Marc Brown’s picture books is to look for his children’s names hidden in the pictures.
The newest Arthur books are longer books for older children to read.
Arthur seems to be everywhere ! He’s even in the big Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
There is even a TV show about Arthur and his friends.
Marc Brown lives in Hingham, Massachusetts and Martha’s Vineyard with his wife and daughter, Eliza. Tolon and Tucker are all grown up and on their own.
