Arthur Bean is a genius - it's just that no one else realises this quite yet. He's going to be a world-famous author, even if he's an outcast who is only confident whilst writing. What he writes is pretty funny, but it gets him into trouble, too - with his English teacher; the editor of the school newspaper; the beautiful girl in his class, Kennedy; and with his number one nemesis, Robbie Zack. Arthur is often too honest for his own good - except for when he's handing in stories based a little too closely on famous novels. Through letters, email exchanges, 'SEE ME' notes and doodles, enter the funny, touching and often mixed-up mind of Arthur Bean, creative genius.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Arthur is a self-dramatizing memoirist with a subversive sensibility, sharp-witted with a magnet eye for the ridiculous. His writings and personality also bring to mind Jeff Kinney's hilarious schemer and pretension-piercing fellow diarist, Greg Heffley." -- Sherie Posesorski * Vancouver Sun *
"This genius series debut is a fresh and funny story about a boy whose bad luck can't dampen his spirit - or his love of writing." * Books for Everybody *
"Humorous... Arthur may finish the year as persnickety and opinionated as he started, but he also learns a few things about compassion, open-mindedness, and fairness." * Publishers' Weekly *
"Incredibly funny and bittersweet. Highly recommended" -- Athina Clarke * Readings *
"At once funny, outrageous, thoughtful, and informative, this is a story with something for everyone, and Arthur's is a voice readers won't soon forget." * The Manitoba Library Association *
