I'm Arthur and I'm seven, and the other day at Picket Lake, Grandpa and I found a dog: a great big, hairy, grey and white dog.
As it was really friendly and it looked a bit lost, we took it home with us.
I wanted to keep him, of course. But how were we ever going to persuade Grandma? Luckily, Cousin Eugene had a cunning plan...ABOUT THE SERIES - Arthur is a seven-year-old boy who is brilliant at being a seven-year-old-boy.
When Arthur visits his grandparents' house by the lake, more often than not, he becomes entangled in a new adventure, which he must solve with the help of his pet duck and useless dog - and hopefully without too much help from eccentric Cousin Eugene.
These are witty stories full of understated humour and populated by quirky yet recognisable characters, and narrated by Arthur who has the rational worldview that comes exclusively from being seven-years-old.REVIEWS "With bold, lovable characters and stories to enchant and entertain, all brought to life by Clare Elsom's quirky illustrations, the witty, wonderful adventures of Arthur and his merry menage look set to run and run" -- LANCASHIRE EVENING POST "An interesting and varied cast of characters join with Arthur to present this quirky and enjoyable view of the world" -- PARENTS IN TOUCH
