show is about an eight year old aardvark named Arthur.
Arthur stories usually revolve around simple events that
children can identify with, such as taking a family vacation,
adjusting to a new baby in the family, or writing a story
for a homework assignment. Arthur always deals with the
situation and helps children learn how to deal with similar
problems at home.
Before Arthur was televised, approximately 3 million Arthur
books were sold over a period of 20 years. After three
and a half years on television, more than 25 million copies
of the Arthur series were sold! Not only were a lot of
Arthur books sold, but Arthur quickly became a top-rated
childrenís show for PBS.
