Authur's Chicken Pox First Edition 1994
Arthur has chicken pox. When the "polka dots" threaten to keep him from the circus, neither Grandma Thora's treats, get-well cards from his class, nor all the cherry cough drops in the world can console him. Meanwhile, he's getting so much attention that indignant D.W. tries a pink marker and pale powder to divert some of it to herself. The familiar drawings, with all the wonderful details of family clutter, are reassuring. Arthur's family is so loving, and the ending so satisfying that there's not much else to say. A must-have.
