"Atkinson’s artwork is charming, and every sketch and brightly painted layered spread featuring allergy-laden Einer the muskrat is particularly delightful. This is a fun lesson in storytelling with cheerful illustrations." - School Library Journal, June 2017
“As Arnold and his friends work their magic, Lodding transforms this classic tale into a clever story about representation and inclusion . . . Atkinson emphasizes Arnold’s unfailing positivity in cheerfully colored, in-your-face digital illustrations that generate a mood of creative chaos. A strong readaloud and excellent starting point for conversations about representation, character, and story.” - Publishers Weekly, June 5, 2017
“Arnold’s insistent requests for edits will evoke lots of participation from young listeners as they recognize allusions to their favorite fairy tale motifs and giggle at Arnold’s proposed innovations; even more giggles will ensue when it’s revealed who the author really is . . . Any kid who’s ever nagged his or her adults into changing their minds will know exactly why Arnold’s is the right ending.” - BCCB, July/August 2017
“Atkinson’s brightly colored cartoon-style illustrations depict Arnold as a red-caped, energetic figure—and as a slightly smaller sheep when he has an illustrator make a few cosmetic adjustments to his wool. A fun, meta, fractured fairy tale.” - Booklist, July 1st, 2017
