Angelina meets a new friend in Angelina and Alice by Katharine Holabird, illus. by Helen Craig. After a grand beginning, the friends go through a bumpy patch when Alice sides with some older kids who mock Angelina's handstand abilities. Luckily, Alice comes through in the end. Craig's illustrations are as winsome as ever as she chronicles the heroine's emotional roller-coaster ride. ( Mar.)
