  • This is the first Living Book to include mini-games integrated into the story itself.
  • This Living Book has a feature with some of the text -- on text that is high-lighted blue, clicking it reveals a picture of the word.
  • The Treasure Hunt mini-game in Arthur's Computer Adventure is a remade version of the Race Game.
  • This is the last Living Books Game to have the Living Books Samplers integrated in the Product and "A Random House/Broderbund Company Ltd" by-line. Not long after that, the sampler wasn't integrated in any more Living Books games.
  • For some reason, in this game, the title card for the demo of "Harry & the Haunted House" would crash the Living Books Sampler (under Windows/Macintosh). In order to correct this, you'll have to copy all the game's files to your desktop, and take the title card of the Harry demo from the Stellaluna game and replace the one in files for Arthur's Reading Race.
  • The 1999 Version has a demo called "Orly's Draw-A-Story".
