PARIS TRUMPS TRUMP

Had to get away from the nonstop Trump show. Paris provided the best excuse and the exhibit of modern art at the Vuitton Foundation was spectacular! The Louvre filled with treasures! Fontainebleau rich with the lavish excess of past French rulers eager to brand their contributions!

THANK YOU JOHN LEWIS!

Thank you John Lewis for speaking the truth and having the courage to say what so many of us believe. And thank you also for being our guest star this season on ARTHUR. Our story of standing up for what you believe is a subject that all children need to think about and practice.

Marc Brown Is Teaming Up with R.L. Stine for a New Book
They’re working on a new project called Mary McScary.

By Matt Juul | Arts & Entertainment |

Marc Brown has a spooky new project in the works.

The Arthur creator is teaming up with Goosebumps scribe RL Stine to write a new picture book titled Mary McScary. The upcoming book is the second collaboration between the authors since their first picture book, The Little Shop of Monsters.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Mary McScary will follow the story of a young girl who gets a a kick out of scaring everyone and everything around her. However, she’s forced to come up with the ultimate scare tactic when her courageous cousin comes to visit.

EW reports that Brown will illustrate Mary McScary, while Stine will take care of the writing duties. The pair is apparently having a great time working together, as Stine told the publication, “I’m having so much fun working with Marc on this funny—and slightly naughty—new character.”
