Book Details

Book Description
I'm Arthur and I'm seven, and the other day, behind my grandparents' house, I found an egg. It was a completely white egg, with no chickens for miles around. I thought this was great, but when I told my family they made the biggest fuss ever. My grandfather, my grandmother, my parents and even the people from the television were trying to understand it. We finally had the chance to get to the bottom of the greatest mystery of all time. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Series description: Arthur is a seven-year-old boy who is brilliant at being a seven-year-old-boy. When Arthur visits his grandparents' house by the lake, more often than not, he becomes entangled in a new adventure, which he must solve with the help of his pet duck and useless dog and hopefully without too much help from eccentric Cousin Eugene. These are witty stories full of understated humour and populated by quirky yet recognisable characters, and narrated by Arthur who has the rational worldview that comes exclusively from being seven-years-old."
