Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Last seen shoplifting (and thoroughly repentant) in Arnie and the Stolen Markers, Arnie heads to summer camp. It's all hereinitial homesickness, admiration for the ``neat'' camp counselor, Stretch, hearing scary stories around the campfire and learning camp songs. When it's over, Arnie is named ``Best New Camper.'' In this primer of the concerns and delights of going away from home for the first time, Carlson works in points about getting along with others: a boy named Ted seems a little obnoxious at first, but Arnie learns to enjoy his tricks. The colors of campwith all its ups and downsare bright, the feeling is genial, and the experience realistically presented. Ages 3-8. (April)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 Arnie's mom says he'll love sleep-away camp, but Arnie's not so sure. The only one on the camp bus who doesn't know the words to the campers' silly songs, Arnie is awash in homesickness. But, before long, he's too busy to think of home and, by camp's end, Arnie, winner of the Best New Camper award, feels ``a little sad'' at the thought of leaving. Arnie's story unfolds in a riot of bold colors and busy pages. A brief text and predictable plot work well in service of the illustrations, where character and plot development really take place. Arnie's spectacled face mirrors his feelings in a way that is endearing and utterly irresistible. His fears are every child's, and his triumph one that all can share. A worthy companion to Harriet, Loudmouth Georgeand Arnie's good friend, Louanne Pig. Marcia Hupp, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, Conn.
