Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celebrated author/illustrator Marc Brown revisits his beloved bestselling character in the first new Arthur picture book in almost ten years!

Arthur comes home from school and begins sneaking around the house, taking notes and talking about a Big Green Machine. D.W. is suspicious of her brother's weird behavior, but when Arthur shows up late for dinner with green hands, she really gets the creeps! But it turns house Arthur is making a poster listing all the ways to save energy at home--and go green!

Just in time for Earth Day, this heartwarming story will be printed on recycled paper with soy based ink.

Review:

"When his class embarks on a 'Big Green Machine' project 'to find ways to make our planet a better place to live,' Arthur focuses on turning his household green by recycling, unplugging his mom's cellphone charger, and replacing conventional light bulbs with energy-saving bulbs. His younger sister, D.W., however, is worried about the 'big machine,' especially when Arthur comes home with green hands (from making a poster), and she dreams about a monster turning everyone green. Her misunderstanding (which is righted in the end) adds a welcome dollop of humor to the story as perennially favorite characters bring home the message about conservation. Ages 3 — 6. (Apr.)"
