PRAISE FOR Albert's Quiet Quest:

“With her elegant, effortlessly fascinating visual style, Arsenault makes it all look like joyous, communal fun.” --New York Times

“In Arsenault’s ideal neighborhood, independent children make their own decisions and form their own community, and they resolve their own conflicts, too.” --Publishers Weekly

"This accessible story will validate readers who relish their quiet time as well as their friends." --Kirkus Reviews

"A subtle portrait of the independent republic of childhood." --Horn Book Magazine

"The imaginative contrast between the beach scenes and the urban setting creates a humorous backdrop for this 'quiet' tale of kindness and friendship." --School Library Journal

"Each member of the beguiling ensemble cast is wholly engaging.” --Quill & Quire

“It is a joy to see Albert’s desire to unwind through his love of reading inspire the children around him to do the same." --Highly Recommended, Resource Links

“[Arsenault’s] masterful capture of motions and emotions with only a few lines is remarkable. . . . [The book] is a humorous and relatable take on navigating social interactions and the need for downtime as an introvert as well as being a loving ode to the quiet power of a good book.” --Highly Recommended, CM Reviews
