CANTON, GA -- Kim Brown, the younger sister of popular children's author Marc Brown, visited the second and third grade classes at Clayton Elementary School in Canton on Thursday, Feb. 17.
Marc Brown is best known for his Arthur books, a series about a loveable aardvark and all his animal friends.
At Clayton Elementary, Kim shared stories about her childhood and revealed that many of the characters in the Arthur books are based on real people from her family and neighborhood. Kim even admitted that Marc based Arthur's pesky little sister D.W. on her!
Needless to say, the students were thrilled to meet the "real" D.W. and hear about her adventures.
