Booklist Review

Ages 4-6. Another in the series featuring Angelina the mouse, this story finds her as a gymnast, one who perseveres despite a few setbacks. Angelina meets a new friend, Alice, who likes to do the same things she does-dancing, somersaults, and splits. But one day while Angelina is trying to perfect her not-too-perfect handstand, she falls on her bottom, prompting the kids to call her Angelina Tumbelina. When Alice laughs too and runs away, Angelina is devastated. Happily, the rip in their friendship is repaired, and Alice goes on to teach Angelina how to do a handstand, leading up to a wonderful gymnastics display at the village festival. Although the reason for Alice's defection is upsettingly left up in the air, this story has a sprightly real-life feel that young children will enjoy. The action bounces across the pages in gay pastel colors and, as in the earlier books, Angelina and friends are charming indeed. IC. Friendship-Fiction / Gymnastics-Fiction / Mice-Fiction [CIP] 87-11746


Publisher's Weekly Review

Angelina meets a new friend in Angelina and Alice by Katharine Holabird, illus. by Helen Craig. After a grand beginning, the friends go through a bumpy patch when Alice sides with some older kids who mock Angelina's handstand abilities. Luckily, Alice comes through in the end. Craig's illustrations are as winsome as ever as she chronicles the heroine's emotional roller-coaster ride. ( Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
