Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Birthday Queen

"The queen, who appears larger than life in most of the action-filled spreads, is at her sweetest alone and revealed on the last page. A fun reminder for kids about who makes the world go round." -Booklist

"Kids will get swept up in the birthday excitement, while adult readers will recognize the small moments of manic preparation-which always ''magically'' turn out in the end." -Kirkus

"This is a warm-hearted tribute to mothers who throw themselves into party-planning for their offspring." -Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books
