About this title


Philip Pullman's wry wit and award-winning talent brings much to this rich, dark and uplifting rendition of the classic tale ALADDIN AND THE ENCHANTED LAMP. With magic and mischief in equal measure, it will captivate readers of all ages.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-6–Pullman, known for his ability to create worlds full of drama, excitement, and dark battles of good versus evil, employs a mild tone in this retelling of the classic tale of the mischievous boy who becomes heir to a magical lamp. He sets the story in its original location–China–and his retelling is fast-paced and lively. Skillful use of colorful contemporary language maintains the tale's mystical, long-ago quality. Descriptions of the boy's most violent encounters are cushioned (the evil Sorcerer's beheading) or omitted (scenes with the Sorcerer's vengeful brother, Aladdin's efforts to stop the princess's marriage to the Vizier's son). The result is an accessible story that can be introduced to younger children. Williams's decorative, jewel-toned illustrations are competent and engaging, but fail to express the drama and excitement of Aladdin's adventures. Eric A. Kimmel's The Tale of Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp (Holiday House, 1992) is an appealing picture-book retelling. Marianna Mayer's striking version (S & S, 1985), illustrated by Gerald McDermott, focuses on Aladdin's attempts to win the princess. Andrew Lang's version (Puffin, 1983) is still the gold standard as the most complete and compelling account of Aladdin's life.–Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
