Arthur and his friends help Buster study for an important test so that he will be able to move on to the fourth grade with them.
Marc Brown is the creator of the bestselling Arthur Adventure book series and creative producer of the number-one children's PBS television series, Arthur. He has also illustrated many other books for children, including Ten Tiny Toes and If All the Animals Came Inside. Marc lives with his family in Tisbury, Martha's Vineyard.
The book version makes a few important changes to the story. Unlike many other television adaptations, Stephen Krensky's alterations always seem to be for the better. This version enriches the story with new details and enlightening descriptions of character fantasy sequences. Also one important detail is changed --- in the television version, the characters are tested over everything they've learned in third grade, while in the book it is only a math test.
The only problem with this adaptation is that a rather odd bit is left in regarding division. At one point, Francine and Muffy attempt to tutor Buster by having him split a group of 20 candies evenly. He correctly splits then into two sets of 10, but struggles when they ask him to split them into even groups of three. They then criticize him when he begins eating candies, even though he has the correct general idea --- 20 candies cannot be split evenly among a group of 3.
