I'm Arthur and I'm seven, and the other day at Picket Lake, I found
the best thing ever: a secret hoard of blueberries! I picked
millions of them as a surprise for Grandma. I ate quite a few of
them too. If only I had known how angry this would make the Witch
of Picket Lake. To make matters worse, Cousin Eugene had a
plan...Arthur is a seven-year-old boy who is brilliant at being a
seven-year-old-boy. When Arthur visits his grandparents' house by
the lake, more often than not, he becomes entangled in a new
adventure, which he must solve with the help of his pet duck and
useless dog - and hopefully without too much help from eccentric
Cousin Eugene. These are witty stories full of understated humour
and populated by quirky yet recognisable characters, and narrated
by Arthur who has the rational worldview that comes from being
seven-years-old."In Arthur and the Witch our young hero upsets the
witch of Picket Lake by picking blueberries. Perfect for new
readers, these stories, narrated by Arthur himself, are perfectly
pitched so young readers will readily identify with Arthur, a
likeable character" -- PARENTS IN TOUCH "Arthur and the Witch is
book five of a great little series for newly independent readers.
Arthur and the Witch is perfect for Halloween, touching on the
scary witch theme but remaining light and fun throughout." --
LIBRARY MICE"A great little series for newly independent readers.
Short and simple, yet engaging and fun, this is a perfect series
for children to try to attempt on their own. The illustrations help
break the text and help set the humorous atmosphere. Arthur is a
loveable and quirky character who will appeal to both boys and
girls." -- LIBRARY MICE"Mercier's warm and reassuring series about
a boy who's brilliant at, well, being a little boy of seven who
loves his family and sharing his adventures is proving a popular
choice for early readers. Full of understated humour which is so
appealing to growing boys, Arthur narrates his own stories and
brings the straightforward, rational world view that comes from
being only seven. With bold, lovable characters and stories to
enchant and entertain, all brought to life by Clare Elsom's quirky
illustrations, the witty, wonderful adventures of Arthur and his
merry menage are set to run a lot longer than Arthur's mad dash
from the wild Witch of Picket Lake!" -- LANCASHIRE EVENING POST.
"Amusing, easy to follow adventures, these are very
age-appropriate, reader-friendly books...a very good series for the
target age group" -- THE SCHOOL LIBRARIAN
