Arthur's local library is holding a poetry contest. When Fern is the only one who enters, she dares Arthur and his friends to write an poem-or else enroll in the Poetry Club for a whole year! They quickly agree to the challenge, but discover the writing poetry is much harder that they thought. Will Arthur, Buster, Francine, and Muffy be able to write poems good enough to read in front of the whole class? Presented in chapter-book format, for children who are ready to read on their own, this creative adventure will surely be a hit among Arthur fans.
