Help Arthur Win the Spellathon

Your kids will love reading and spelling with Arthur! Based on the book by best-selling author Marc Brown, children practice spelling and reading while learning new vocabulary words. Kids practice along with Arthur as he studies for his school's spelling bee. Enhance your child's education while they have fun playing with Arthur - we won't tell them they're learning if you don't.

Mr Ratburn gives a spelling test the first week of school! Little does Arthur know that he'll soon be representing his class in the school-wide spellathon.

Kids love helping their favorite character, Arthur, study for the big spellathon in this highly interactive, 24-page story.

Spelling words are highlighted as they are read aloud so that children see and hear the letter at the same time, reinforcing new vocabulary in a way proven to help them learn.

A big reward lies ahead if Arthur does his best studying for the spellathon!

"You know a kids program is good when you can't keep the adults away from it. This is the second book in the Living Books series that began with the young children's hit Just Grandma and Me. This product moves the audience age up from preschoolers and kindergartners to the early grammar school kids. Indeed, Arthur is a third grader faced with a tough teacher and an inter-school spelling bee. Each "page" in the story is read aloud to children as they follow the highlighted text, and each screen is alive with hotspots that reward mouse clicks with amazing sounds and animation. It is a beautiful program and should be at the top of any parents list."

CD-ROM World, November/December 1993

"Filled with humor and wit, Arthur's Teacher Trouble could charm the skin off a cobra...If you want great entertainment value for your primary schoolers that simultaneously and smoothly brings valuable education to the desktop, Arthur's Teacher Trouble graduates cum laude."

PC Games Magazine, Winter 1994

"Arthur's third grade teacher, Mr. Ratburn, fills the 'pages' with fear, frustration, challenge, and accomplishment for Arthur and his classmates as they prepare for a spelling bee. Loaded with humor, Arthur takes you on a belly-busting comedy tour as classmates describe 'The Rat' as a vampire with magical powers or 'One wrong move and he'll put you on death row.' It's a crack-up."

ComputerLife, October 1994

"Soon, though, I was hooked and I wanted to coax her out of the chair so that I could play. When she went to bed (finally!), I leaped at the chance to experience Living Books first-hand. I wasn't alone, Before long, half the party was taking turns with Arthur's Teacher Trouble, Just Grandma and Me, and my favorite - Ruff's Bone. Each colorfully illustrated story is filled with charming, high-quality artwork and great narration. You can sit back and have the story read to you (couch-potato mode), but the adults at the party found that the real fun is clicking around on the screen.

"Almost every detail on every page came alive with a click of the mouse. Before long we had rabbits scampering, flowers singing, even fence posts goosing Grandma. It was like being inside a Saturday morning cartoon, only better. The imagination stuffed into these discs is amazing - and addictive to children of all ages."
