Arthur thinks his pen pal is more fun than his little sister. Little sisters don't do things like karate and wrestling -- or do they? It takes a surprise letter to show Arthur that sometimes there's more to sisters -- and pen pals -- than meets the eye!

Lillian Hoban was the author and illustrator of many favorite I Can Read books, including Joe and Betsy the Dinosaur, Silly Tilly's Thanksgiving, and a series about Arthur the chimpanzee. She also illustrated many picture books, including the classic stories about Frances.

Editorial Reviews

"Arthur, in the role of a small male chauvinist chimp, is forced to change his views when he discovers that his pen pal, whose talent in karate and playing the drums Arthur envies, is really a girl." (School Library Journal)
