How Many Candles? by Helen V. Griffith, Sonia Lamut

Dogs, boys, cats, turtles, even gnats, do not age in quite the same way. But try explaining this to Alex the whippet! The all-knowing cat gives his canine friend a patient lesson in relative time in the animal kingdom—although Alex just wants to know how many candles to put on his best friend Robbie's birthday cake. One thing adds up for sure, though, this rib-tickling odd couple (now appearing in picture-book format) is sure to delight their growing legions of young fans!
