Has anybody ever read the Arthur Chapter Books? I've read a few: The ones based on "Arthur Accused!", "Buster's Dino Dilemma," and "The Big Blow-Up." Do you think any of the chapter books are better than the episodes they were based on? I know that I liked the episodes "Buster's Dino Dilemma" and the "Big Blow-Up" more than the chapter books. As for "Arthur Accused!", I'm not sure.

I've read Arthur's Birthday. As for whether the books are better then the episodes is up for a huge debate. In some episodes though they reference things from the books. An example is in the episode Sue Ellen's Lost Diary where she admits that she said nice things about Arthur. This referenced the fact Arthur had a crush on Sue Ellen in the books.
