His illustrations were chosen from more than 2,700 entries and presented at the Children's Book Fair in Bologna in recognition of him being one of the most innovative new illustrators. As an accomplished artist with several exhibitions to his name, Sebastian Meschenmoser is among Germany's most successful and admired young illustrators for children.


"This makes a good choice for story hours or one-on-one sharing."-Booklist, Kay Weisman
"Meschenmoser s soft pencil portraits of the squirrel s inner fears teeter right at the sweet spot between anguish and humor. The story s deepest pleasure comes from the contrast between its ever-more-ridiculous scenarios and the artist s solemn, classically proportioned drafting style."-Publishers Weekly"
" As this book proves, squirrels, jail sequences, and edible heavenly bodies make for picture book gold. Delicious."-Fuse #8 Production/School Library Journal, Elizabeth Bird
"As this book proves, squirrels, jail sequences, and edible heavenly bodies make for picture book gold. Delicious...if I had my way every Caldecott would go to Sebastian Meschmenmoser, regardless of citizenship or whether or not he has a book out in a given year."-Fuse #8 Production/School Library Journal, Elizabeth Bird
"Readers of all ages are going to love this deliciously funny picture book. One cannot help sympathizing with Mr. Squirrel, but at the same time it is hard not to laugh at the mess he and his animal friends get into. As the story unfolds the situation gets worse and worse, and funnier and funnier."- Marya Jansen-Gruber, Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Reviews
"A hilarious story accompanied by wonderful illustrations of the poor worried Mr. Squirrel."- Katrina Yurenka, Youth Services Blog
"The beautifully surreal artwork perfectly complements this whimsical, original fairy tale..."- Midwest Book Review
