Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Each book in this small library of Aladdin Storybooks contains a minor lesson, usually about tolerance: a short girl and a tall boy become friends; a large gray rabbit is helped by his weaker friend, the white rabbit; a glossy black duck longs to be another color; and, in the best of these, The Paper Airplane, a lonely man finds friendship with schoolchildren. Each tale is competently written, if ordinary, with an inviting tone. What really makes the series so appealing, other than the price of each book, is the array of full-color illustrations that will draw readers right into the stories. Ages 6-9. (February)
School Library Journal
ea. vol: tr. from French by Didi Charney. 33p. (Storybooks Series). Aladdin: Macmillan . 1988. pap. $2.95. LC number unavailable. Gr 1-3 Each of these small books deals with a problem encountered by children. Sophie, of Sophie and Simon , is teased because she is the shortest student in her class. When she learns to walk on stilts, she gains respect. In The Day the Dragon Came to School, Daniel is certain that he won't fit into the second grade becauseas a large green dragonhe's different from everyone else. He finally realizes that he is accepted by the children for exactly what he is. In Paper Airplane , Albert is writing a ``long and sad story.'' When he looks outside, he hears the voices of children playing. He sends a message to them on a paper airplane, they correspond often, and finally plan to meet. Alfred is apprehensive because he's grown ``a little fat,'' but he is immediately accepted. The characterizations in these books are fair to good, with Sophie being the strongest character. The supporting characters are weak. The plots are used to develop the themes and are, therefore, also weak. The themes are obvious, and the only one which is fairly well resolved is that in The Paper Airplane. Each book is illustrated with softly colored drawings in an appropriate style. The illustrations are of average quality and add little to the texts. The small format will appeal to younger readers, but the vocabulary is not appropriate for beginning readers.
