"A welcome story of a child overcoming her fears in her own time, and of a close and supportive intergenerational friendship."
— The Horn Book Magazine

"Mylie’s graphite art is monochromatically tinged black-and-white with bright pops of yellow that exudes a striking, sketchy look with high contrast and deep shadows. Kids who have broken a limb of their own—or faced any kind of tragedy that understandably could happen again—may want to pick this one up to be encouraged by Lulu’s story."

— The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Morris leaves no feeling unturned in Out on a Limb, for which Mylie has created a pigtailed protagonist whose every emotion commands her face like a newspaper headline." 
— Shelf-Awareness

"The dual arcs converge slowly, suggestive of the patience Lulu must have as she heals emotionally as well as physically, and the uplifting story concludes with a moment of serendipity that encourages Lulu to overcome her fears." 
— Publishers Weekly
