Meet Arthur...


Meet Arthur, the protagonist and narrator of our new young fiction series, launching in spring 2013. Written by Québécois author Johanne Mercier, translated by Daniel Hahn and illustrated by Clare Elsom.

Arthur is a seven-year-old boy who is brilliant at being a seven-year-old boy. These are witty stories full of understated humour, populated by quirky yet recognisable characters, and narrated by Arthur who has the rational worldview that comes exclusively from being seven- years-old.
