Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;Bandgt;A fun and cozy celebration of birthdays from the author of the Caldecott Honor book

Review:

"While the title isn't especially distinctive, this is as memorable and heartfelt as a birthday book gets. Scanlon (All the World) presents the special day through a series of questions. 'What are these and what are those?' the young birthday bunny asks, pointing to clothing held up by her mother and a polo-shirted older sibling. 'Fancy shoes and party clothes!' they reply, as the girl holds her skirt out while they applaud. Graegin's (Don't Feed the Boy) pencil and ink wash spreads show the bunny's family and friends — foxes, owls, raccoons, and more — crowded together in one room, the children chasing after each other, the grownups looking on. 'What do you mean that time just flies?' the birthday girl asks the adults curled up on the sofa with photo albums. 'You're growing up before our eyes,' they tell her, while Graegin's faux photos show her as a swaddled infant and a just-walking toddler. This isn't about irony; it's pure celebration, and readers will share wholeheartedly in the pleasure. Ages 2 — 5. Agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. Illustrator's agent: Steven Malk, Writers House." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
