About Arthur Robins

See more books from this Author
Rick Walton is the author of numerous books for children, including HOW MANY, HOW MANY, HOW MANY, illustrated by Cynthia Jabar; and two books in Candlewick's Really, Really Bad Jokes series. About BERTIE WAS A WATCHDOG he says, "I like stories where things are not as they seem. A watchdog is usually big and mean. I thought it would be fun to write a story about a watchdog who you discover is not big and mean - who protects not with his bark and his bite, but with his brain." Arthur Robins has illustrated such books as WHAT USE IS A MOOSE? by Martin Waddell and has also displayed his inimitable humor in the Giggle Club title THE TEENY TINY WOMAN. Arthur Robins says that his biggest challenge in illustrating Bertie Was a Watchdog was to come up with the right-sized dog. As he explains, "My editor said, 'Draw Bertie smaller. No, smaller - smaller than that. Smaller still. . . . Good, now, where is he?'
