Arthur is not very good at saving money. So when he begins mowing lawns and walking dogs for extra money, D.W. wants to know why. "It's a secret," he says and everyday he stuffs more money into his piggy bank. Eavesdropping on Arthur, she learns that he is going to break his bank. Determined to keep him from foolishly spending his hard-earned savings, D.W. hides the bank--until she learns that he has been saving up for her birthday present! Marc Brown represented the U.S. in the children's picture book category at the first Russian Book Fair in Moscow in 2003. The author lives in Hingham and Martha's Vineyard, MA.
