This American author and illustrator changed the spelling of his name (from Mark) in 1956 in honor of the painter Marc Chagall. He attended the Cleveland Institute of Art and worked a variety of jobs--including truck driver and chicken farmer--before beginning his career as a creator of children's books. Best known for his series of books featuring Arthur the Aardvark, Brown has also collaborated with his wife, Laurene Krasny Brown, on a number of non-fiction books for children.

Arthur the aardvark is embarrassed by the fact that he must wear eyeglasses. Will anything help Arthur appreciate his specs? Watercolor and ink illustrations accompany the text.
This is Arthur before he got glasses. He looked fine, but he couldn't see very well. Sometimes he got headaches.
His friends tease Arthur when he gets glasses, but he soon learns to wear them with pride.
