Jimmy's Boa and the Big Splash Birthday Bashby Trinka Hakes Noble, Steven Kellogg
There's a tidal wave of trouble, and an ocean of laughs when Jimmy takes his new pet goldfish and pet boa constrictor to his birthday bash at SeaLand.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyWhen Jimmy's birthday rolls around, his mom decides to give him a goldfish and a party at SeaLand. Once they arrive, chaos reigns; Jimmy and his guests set off a tidal wave of crazy situations, carefully choreographed in text and art. It's all told by Jimmy's friend Meggie to her mom, who, in the opening spread, demands to know why Meggie has arrived home soaking wet. Their running conversation provides the captions for Kellogg's vibrant illustrations that almost burst off the page with youthful exuberance. The effect is much like a successful real-life birthday party: frenetic for onlookers but fabulous for the celebrators. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
