What the Critics Say

“An excellent introduction to the Aladdin lore.” (Publishers Weekly)
"An author more commonly known for weaving tales of startling originality here makes his mark on an old standard....Pullman's spin on Aladdin's serendipitous adventures is satisfyingly festooned with exotic vocabulary and details. He also enlivens the telling with knowing wit, reminiscent of Hans Christian Andersen's; children will delight in the zoo of wonders where identification placards are written 'in outlandish tongues like English.'"
