Kindergarten-Grade 2–In these retellings of two traditional tales, both the English and Spanish renditions are fluent and literary in quality. Even the illustrations (although quite different in both technique and style) have a timeless air that complements the texts seamlessly. In the Aesop tale, the boastful hare zooms far ahead of the plodding turtle, but stops to gobble up a field of lettuce, take a nap under an oak tree, and stay overnight with family. Ever confident, he arrives at his destination the next day only to find that the tortoise has beaten him there. In Aladdin, the boy is sealed into a cave by an evil magician, whereupon he finds the enchanted lamp. He employs its powers unabashedly in order to win the hand of the princess and defeat the villain. While both texts require confident readers, these stories would work well as read-alouds in a classroom or storytime setting. First-class additions.

Like other entries in the publisher's successful series of retellings of world-renowned stories, this title lives up to the promise of the previous books. Told in a simple but richly descriptive style, the story is both entertaining and lends itself very well to reading out loud. Max's illustrations, executed in pastels, are appealing albeit a bit bland. But the story is aptly rendered in the English and the Spanish versions, and overall, this is handsomely executed and a great addition to a child's library of favorite bedtime readings. Stella Clark
