Gr 2-4-- A newly illustrated version of de Regniers' sprightly text (Pantheon, 1959; o.p.). A farmer's lonely wife wants to throw a party. Although she gets little encouragement from her husband, she continues to daydream about the type of party she would throw. The fierce snowstorm raging outside their farmhouse becomes the catalyst for the somewhat implausible events that follow. The farmer brings his 300 baby chicks into the farmhouse; a carload of people and then more carloads seek shelter at the farmhouse. When the bakery truck driver gets stuck and enters the farmhouse, he suggests that the people unload the cupcakes, rolls, pies, and cake from his truck. Now the wife's party can begin. Accompanying this humorous series of coincidences are rambunctious cartoon illustrations. Done in a line style reminiscent of the classic magazine cartoons of the 1960s, the illustrations are highlighted with dabs of bright acrylic paints. An entertaining story with attractive illustrations that will appeal to young readers who still like pictures with their books. --Denise Anton Wright, Library Book Selection Service, Inc., Bloomington, IL
