• "Arthur is a self-dramatizing memoirist with a subversive sensibility, sharp-witted with a magnet eye for the ridiculous. His writings and personality also bring to mind Jeff Kinney’s hilarious schemer and pretension-piercing fellow diarist, Greg Heffley."

    Sherie Posesorski, Vancouver Sun
  • "This genius series debut is a fresh and funny story about a boy whose bad luck can’t dampen his spirit - or his love of writing."

    Books for Everybody
  • "Humorous... Arthur may finish the year as persnickety and opinionated as he started, but he also learns a few things about compassion, open-mindedness, and fairness."

    Publishers' Weekly
  • "Incredibly funny and bittersweet. Highly recommended"

    Athina Clarke, Readings
  • "At once funny, outrageous, thoughtful, and informative, this is a story with something for everyone, and Arthur’s is a voice readers won’t soon forget."
