Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In the newest adventure in this series, best friends Mr. Bing and Arnie the doughnut are part of a Tuesday night bowling league. Arnie cannot bowl (and he provides the reasons why), but he does sing karaoke and has a delightful time entertaining the crowds with old favorites: Livin' la vi-DOUGH loca and Fried in the U.S.A. Arnie is determined to help his friend win a tournament, but first he must unravel the mystery of why Mr. Bing keeps rolling gutter balls despite the fact that his favorite ball has been enhanced by lucky pink sprinkles. Several hilarious tangents keep this main conflict from being resolved too soon. Puns, sophisticated linguistic humor, and cameo appearances by Albert Einstein and other notable figures, such as Peezo the slice of pizza and an erudite French cruller make this a lively, intelligent, and highly entertaining read for young students and anyone with a sense of humor.--Chaudhri, Amina Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Keller continues the saga of the fast-talking star of her 2003 picture book, Arnie the Doughnut, in this funny kickoff to a heavily illustrated chapter book series. Arnie sets the scene with a brief rehash of that story, in which Mr. Bing decides (with some persuasion) not to eat Arnie, but to adopt him as his "doughnut-dog." In this tale, Arnie accompanies Mr. Bing to the bowling alley, where his team is competing for the league championship. Arnie's wisecracking narrative, zippy dialogue and asides, exuberant typography, and riotous cartooning (Albert Einstein even makes a couple cameos) all feed the tale's full-throttle slapstick humor. Arnie sings karaoke ("Doughnut make my brown eyes blue"), leads the crowd in belting out "Take Me Out for Some Bowling" during the "seventh-frame stretch," and makes some bowling alley friends ("In fact, between the bowling balls, bowling pins, and rental shoes I've made 8 homies, 11 peeps, and 13 BFF's!"). And, as frosting on the-well, doughnut-he also discovers why Mr. Bing is throwing gutter balls. Keller shrewdly targets hesitant readers with an abundance of goofy comedy. Ages 7-10.
