 Marc Brown Biography

An affable aardvark named Arthur stars in many of Marc Brown's acclaimed children's books. The bespeckled character, whose adventures mirror the lives of young audiences from preschoolers to beginning readers, is the center of an empire that includes print, an Emmy-winning animated series now the longest running animated children’s show in history.

The "Arthur" series grew from bedtime tales told by writer-illustrator Brown to his young son, Tolon. But why an aardvark? “All the bunnies and bears were taken”, said Marc. The first "Arthur" story concerned the youngster's dismay over his prominent nose. "I just imagined being an aardvark and trying to play hide and seek and my nose getting in the way, Brown added. I was making it up as I was going along. I like to find an issues that are important to kids." That's what I think I do best. I like using humor to focus on real subjects that kids are struggling with in their lives. I never dreamed where that little bedtime story would take me."

Marc Brown is married to Laurie Krasny Brown, an author, artist and psychologist. They have three grown children and divide their time between a small farm in Martha’s Vineyard and New York City. “My studio in New York City is so small, I call it The Tomb.”, said Marc.
