Editorial Reviews
 
The New York Times Book Review,
1/11/2001

"Because of their roots in oral tradition, folk tales make good read-aloud stories, as Karim Alrawi shows with 'The Girl Who Lost Her Smile.' Based on the works of Rumi, the 13th-century Persian poet, 'The Girl Who Lost Her Smile' tells the story of Jehan, who wakes up sad one morning and turns a city gray because only her smile can bring out the sun. So a hoopoe, a wise bird who consults with Jehan's father, sets off in search of someone who can produce a smile. . . . Stefan Czernecki's pictures sparkle. His simple, precise strokes set the tone of a fairy tale, and his colorful hoopoe is an inviting and memorable guide. Just as important, his colors perfectly capture changing moods . . . In their elegant simplicity, the pictures carry the story."
