Booklist - 07/23/2023 Fans of Faruqi’s popular Yasmin series will be pleased to meet Pakistani American second-grader Ali Tahir and his family. In this early chapter book, Ali, along with his grandfather and mischief-prone little brother, Fateh, go on a snack run. At the South Asian market, keeping an eye on Fateh is an adventure. Ali’s quick reflexes and creative thinking thwart a spicy-chips display disaster as well as a lost-sib debacle. A preface offers an introductory character guide and an Urdu glossary. Three ultra-readable chapters feature large type font, generous line spacing, and short sentences. Indonesian illustrator Rahmalia’s dynamic cartoon vignettes are full of energy and personality. Back matter includes “Think Big with Ali the Great” discussion questions, some jokes, and a snack lexicon of Dada’s favorite Pakistani tasty treats, like crispy nimko and salty chickpeas. An irresistible series opener that will leave young readers hungry for more. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
