Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Unlike these collaborators' recent Side by Side, this small picture book is really two volumes in one: an extended collection of verse, accompanied by a wordless depiction of a boy's activities on his birthday. Knight cleverly interweaves the disparate poems with the day-long festivities: the gift of a mouse from the boy's brother, a party where his friends play pin the tail on the donkey. Although the illustrations are full of humor and characteristic elan, these lackluster, greeting card-like verses offer little charm or wordplay. Nevertheless, the book may satisfy those looking for an unusual birthday greeting. Ages 3-7. (Aug.)
Children's Literature
This book welcomes children to a joyful birthday celebration. Hopkins collects an assortment of birthday verse penned by poets of children's literature. Knight's whimsical illustrations chronicle the day, starting with waking up: "Today I'll shout and blow my horn. Today is the day that I was born!" The book provides a clever realization—"How old will you be on your birthday? Whatever you are on your birthday, you were never that old before, you will never be that young again!" On to the party, with cake, presents, and games. Pin the tail on the donkey is fun, "except for the time Charlotte got all mixed up and started to pin it on me." We are treated to some wise advice—"The nicest part of birthday fun is sharing it with everyone!" Guaranteed to come true—a birthday wish, to "grow every year!" The essence of a birthday: "Huffy, puffy, sticky, licky. Slippy, drippy, presents on the table, presents on the floor, happysnappy birthday, happysnap some more!" The poems evoke a sense of childhood innocence too often lost in a fastpaced world. 2000, Simon & Schuster, Ages 3 to 8, $11.95 and $5.95. Reviewer: Julie Steinberg
