I’m Arthur and I’m seven, and last Saturday, at my grandparents’ house, we all got a bit of a fright. The night before, the neighbor heard strange noises coming from her garden and she saw two big, black eyes staring at her. There was only one thing for it: Grandma phoned Cousin Eugene. Before we knew it, the whole world had come to see the Yeti of Picket Lake. 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.
