Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Once again, Hurwitz combines humor, realism and a keen perception of childhood feelings in a well-written sequel to Ali Baba Bernstein . Protagonist David Bernstein, an individualist preferring the exotic ``Ali Baba'' to what he considers the overused ``David,'' is now in fourth grade. He loves mysteries, occasionally creating them where none exist, to very funny effect. Each chapter offers a complete and self-contained episode, which means readers can pace themselves accordingly. The chapter in which Ali Baba and a second grader, Natalie Gomez, confront a man they think is Santa Claus and drill him as to why presents are not delivered to Jewish children, will strike a chord for many readers--they will cheer for Ali Baba, and for Hurwitz. Ages 8-12. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- As readers of The Adventures of Ali Baba Bernstein (Morrow, 1985) already know, David is disgusted with being one of ``many David's and delighted to discover in the Arabian Nights a name that can be uniquely his.'' Ali Baba is now in fourth grade and has preserved his zest for trying the unusual. He pursues the mysterious comings and goings of his upstairs neighbor to a simple and amusing conclusion. On a shopping trip with his mother he discovers royalty, from Donut King to Sweater Palace. With his friend Roger he trails elusive circus tickets from pocket to pocket of look-alike tan raincoats. He runs home from a class trip to the public library for his forgotten library card, causing more trouble than he expected. He even meets Santa Claus (in disguise, of course) and clarifies some questions he has as a Jewish non-receiver of Santa's gifts. As always, Hurwitz writes realistically about youngsters with whom middle-class readers can identify. Ali Baba's life is a sunny one, with no big problems at home or school, just short, humorous episodes simply written to hold the interest of young readers. Most third and fourth graders will find more to discuss and enjoy in other Hurwitz books, such as Teacher's Pet (Morrow, 1988), but for her younger fans, Ali Baba is a good read. --Sylvia S. Marantz, Wellington School, Columbus, Ohio
