Dudley's Birthday Party

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Two stories about an ever-smiling, rotund pink pig with nasty habits. In Dudley Helps Out!, he does anything but. He knocks over furniture by roller-skating while dusting and cleans his room by cramming all of his toys under the bed. In Birthday Party, when asked if he is going to share his cake, he responds with a loud "NO!" Lifting the flap shows Dudley serving his three guests minuscule slices while hoarding the rest for himself. An illogical progression of party events ends with the words "Happy Birthday, Dudley!" and the final flap reveals his three friends (a pig, a rabbit, and a duck) blowing party horns and saying "Surprise!" Although the bright, childlike illustrations utilize bold, eye-catching colors and are developmentally appropriate for the intended age group, there isn't much else to like about these books. Jeannette Rowe's delightful and appealing Whose Nose?, Whose Ears?, and Whose Feet? (all Little, Brown, 1999) are far more successful lift-the-flap books.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
