Publisher Comments:

Doo-boppa, doo-boppa, doo-boppa-do! Join the romp as a bevy of forest creatures, both diurnal and nocturnal, inspire a very active celebration.

What could be better than friends together at a party in a tree? All of the forest critters will be there: the squirrel, raccoons, possums, frogs, birds, mice, and more. Even the slimy slugs are sure to slither in for the food, games, music, and dancing. And don't forget Baby Bear — that little clown will be there for sure! John Manders revs up the action with bold illustrations, while David Martin sneaks in some counting and movement prompts in a rollicking, boisterous tale that will have children eager to jump up and join the party.

Review:

"As every host knows, a successful party is as much a matter of venue as it is the mix of guests and food. So when Grandpa Crow decides to hold a high altitude soiree — 'What could be better than friends together at a party in a tree?' — everybody comes, from Baby Bear to 'Ten slimy slugs.' The fun doesn't stop once the sun goes down: when it turns dark, nocturnal animals arrive to 'light this tree' both literally and figuratively. Martin's (Little Bunny and the Magic Christmas Tree) rhyming text has a hard-to-find meter, and the language can feel fusty ('Then just in time for hungry tummies,/ bluebirds came with yummy yummies'; he also rhymes 'pizza' with 'eat-za!'). But Manders's (Pirates Go to School) pictures are winners page after page. The full-throttle characterizations and exuberant physicality are reminiscent of vintage animation, while the ever-shifting perspectives give the action a gleefully frenetic, cinematic feel (one particularly impressive spread looks up into the tree as the animals bunny-hop across a branch). Thanks to Manders, these critters really are the very picture of party-hearty. Ages 2 — 5." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
