"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
"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."

"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
"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."
