Arthur Bean is a genius - it's just that no one else realises this quite yet.
He's going to be a world-famous author, even if he's an outcast who is only confident whilst writing.
What he writes is pretty funny, but it gets him into trouble, too - with his English teacher; the editor of the school newspaper; the beautiful girl in his class, Kennedy; and with his number one nemesis, Robbie Zack.
Arthur is often too honest for his own good - except for when he's handing in stories based a little too closely on famous novels.
Through letters, email exchanges, 'SEE ME' notes and doodles, enter the funny, touching and often mixed-up mind of Arthur Bean, creative genius.
