Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Your birthday may only come once a year, but you've got all year long to practice for it. Lana Kittie will walk you through all the steps--what to eat (hint: not pickles and maccaroni), what to wear (anything you want!) and how to enjoy your most special day ever! Don't wait! You've only got 365 days left to practice!
Lana Kittie, the irrepressible little sister of everyone's favorite, best-dressed heroine, Fashion Kitty, covers all the details leading up to the best birthday ever! Loaded with charm, personality and practical advice, How to Have the Best Birthday Ever shows us how to make that special day count--all year long.

Review:

"Birthday parties aren't just annual indulgences in narcissism; they also offer teachable moments on the art of being a gracious hostess. Harper (Cupcake) wears her etiquette doyenne hat lightly as her sprightly heroine guides readers through a successful (practice) soiree, with her toys serving as guests. All the examples hit the 'funny-because-it's-true' nail on the head ('This is not a good way to welcome a party guest. ‘Oh good, you brought a present. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!' '), while conveying useful tips to boot. 'A good birthday hostess chooses something everyone can do together,' writes Harper, while the creatively attired Lana ('On your birthday, no one should be the boss of your fashion except you!') dances with a stuffed monkey and whale. And party planners should note that 'eggs on a stick' and 'peanut butter and lettuce' are on the do-not-serve list, as far as food goes. The precocious pedagogy, combined with frisky, naïf drawings and a candy-colored palette, give these pages a deliciously intimate feel, as if readers have been given the privilege of reading a peer's journal. Ages 3 — up. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:
