I’m Arthur and I’m seven, and starting tomorrow I’ve got a new job: I’m going to be selling earthworms. I started getting interested in worms because of my duck. He lives at my grandparents’ house and worms are his favorite food. When I want to give him a treat, we go worm-hunting together. It rained a lot on Sunday, so we found hundreds! This gave my grandfather an idea…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.
