Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
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.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Angelina and Alice are two mice who are drawn into a wonderful friendship when they find out how much they have in common. They spend all of their time together and appreciate their complementary talents. However, when Angelina takes an embarrassing fall in front of everyone on the playground, Alice joins in the laughter that follows. Angelina is broken-hearted, and her hurt increases when Alice stops playing with her and begins to follow the popular crowd. The announcement of a gymnastics performance to be presented at the village festival leads to a reconciliation of the friends. They throw themselves into practicing a perfect routine that showcases their talents as a team. Angelina and Alice learn that friendship is a strong bond that can overcome any odds. A number of other Angelina stories are also available to enchant young readers. 2001, Pleasant Company, $9.95. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Carol Lynch
