Is Arthur in trouble?

I love reading children's books, even though I am not a child anymore. Arthur has always been one of my favorite TV shows. Therefore I decided to read one of the books based on it. I was very much impressed as to how good the story was, and in par with the TV show. The story starts off with Arthur and his friends, enjoying their time in school, when an announcement is made for Arthur to come to the Principal's office. Arthur is very nervous, because nobody gets called to the principal's office unless they are in trouble, and Arthur doesn't even remember what he did. When he goes to see Mr. Haney (The Principal), he gives Arthur a sealed envelope with the words `private' and `confidential' stamped on it, and tells Arthur to give it to his mother. Arthur is now scared, and starts wondering as to whether he should give the envelope to his mother or not. The book continues with Arthur's friends giving him advice on what he should do with the envelope, and in the end, revealing what the envelope actually contains and whether Arthur gives it to his mother or not. This is a great book for young children, as it provides a very good moral that you should face your troubles, not hide or run from it. Even adults will find the book humorous at times, when reading this story to their children. I would recommend this book to anyone having children, as it will be a good way to spend time with your kids by reading this story with them. Even if you don't have children, you will enjoy reading this book if you like the TV show.

A teriffic book to the beginning of the series

This book has a teriffic, funny storyline. If kids read the books in numerical order, this one is sure to get them inspired into reading Arthur. I highly recommend it to everyone.

Good mystery

I really liked this book because I didn't know what was going to happen until the end. I really thought that Arthur was in trouble. It's a good mystery and you have to read it to find out what it's about. I'm not going to tell you.

An Excellent children's book.

This is an excellent children's book. Especially for children making the transition to chapter books. It is well written and easy to read. It deals with problems in which children can easily idenitfy. Marc Brown gives great detail to Authur's anxiety of the unknown contents of the envelope. His writing certainly brings back my own childhood experiences. The pictures in this book allow children to identify with the charcaters and help them draw a mental picture of the story. The mystery has a wonderful happy ending and may help children understand that the unknown is not nesscessarily a bad thing. These are just some of the reasons I would recommend this book.

A very good, but short mystery

I like this book because it does have a style of it's own, and I don't like it because the chapters are so short. I think all the chapters should be a page longer, but that may because I am not a beginner reader. I did like the way the book was written, and how the author made you feel scared, if Arthur is scared. That is one good thing about the book. There are many other reasons why it is a good book, like the fact it is almost impossible to figure out. You would never guess what is in the envelope.
