Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3?Another installment in Arthur's everyday adventures. When his teacher asks the students to write a story about something that is important to them, everyone's favorite aardvark cheerfully writes about how he got his dog (told in Arthur's Pet Business [Little, 1990]). But when his sister comments that the story is dull, he changes it. Each person he talks to gives him different advice, so worried Arthur keeps adding and changing. On the day the assignment is due, his contrived and confusing tale elicits a negative response. When he tells his original story, he receives a gold star and applause. Brown's watercolor-and-ink illustrations feature a rounder-faced Arthur surrounded by a lighter and brighter world of home and school. A lesson of being true to oneself that newly independent readers can easily handle.?Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY

From Booklist

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 --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so much about writing a story Aug. 7 2011
By Stacey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a pleasant read. However, I purchased it to influence my students to write stories, and this book is more about the influence of friends than story writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars "And leave out the dancing....", my son recites April 11 2010
By Jen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My 4 year old son loves this story. We got the audio CD collection (Arthur Favorites, vol 1) which has Marc Brown reading - and singing - this story which my son absolutely loves to listen to. He sings the quirky songs that Arthur makes up in trying to come up with a creative story. My son also loves the punch line at the end of the story "and leave out the dancing" - he will just say this to himself and start laughing. I love all the Arthur books because they really hold my sons interest and make him want to read books instead of watch TV.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great way to teach writing. Sept. 10 2008
By R. Fischer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a third grade teacher, I am constantly trying to find ways to catch a student's interest. When it comes time to teach the writing process, I begin by reading this book. Although it seems to be overly simplistic for the grade level, it does convey what happens when your subject is too broad or your ability to stay on topic has gone awry - disaster! The "what not to do" idea in this book has become invaluable.
