Summary
The class homework assignment is to write a story, and everyone seems to be writing about something interesting...except Arthur. Will he find something he cares to write about or will his story be a big mess?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 4^-8. Mr. Ratburn tells his class to write a story, and Arthur starts right away. He is pleased with his effort, "How I Got My Puppy Pal," but everyone he talks to suggests a change, and the amiable Arthur incorporates every suggestion. The result, a song-and-dance number about a boy and his pet elephant on Plant Shmellafint, leaves his class speechless, but Mr. Ratburn recovers in time to bring Arthur down to earth and elicit the original story. Bright ink-and-watercolor illustrations offer appealing views of Arthur's home and school as well as his literary fantasies. Teachers will find this an entertaining cautionary tale to read aloud to young writers, and, of course, Arthur fans will devour it. One of the best in this popular series. --Carolyn Phelan"
