Marc Brown, creator of the Arthur the aardvark children’s book series, is calling it a day after 25 years, so he can return to his first love: painting. His books spawned a PBS cartoon series (which will continue) and a touring stage company featuring fellow characters Binky Barnes (a bulldog) and D.W. (Arthur’s kid sister). Gee, first “Peanuts” and now this.
