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
