From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4-- A story told in rhyme about an appealing starlet and her costar sheep dog, Belle, who is dognapped by a wicked film producer. Jo, a cross between Amelia Earhart, Shirley Temple, and Pippi Longstocking, leaps into her jaunty red seaplane and flies (not without incident) to London, Paris, and Istanbul; through an East Indian jungle; landing at last in a ``shark-infested sea'' and makes her way to Wangaloo. Not to fear; the ending's pure Hollywood, and the producer and his henchmen wind up doomed to ``a lengthy stretch in jail.'' The technicolor illustrations are rendered with consummate skill and charm, and the art deco touches and well-heeled villains will make readers feel as though they are in an old-fashioned Saturday matinee serial. Besides being fun, the illustrations are informative; double-page spreads depicting New York City, London, and a Rajah's palace are true to life and filled with details kids will want to return to again and again. First published in Great Britain, the text is occasionally a bit challenging, but the book will make a fine read-aloud. Its layout and design are also excellent. A smashing adventure. --Eve Larkin, Middleton Public Lib . , WI
