KIRKUS REVIEW

Nothing seems to go right on Henry's birthday: the cake isn't chocolate, he's not allowed to wear old clothes, and his best friend's present doesn't seem to be what was promised. Fortunately, it all turns out well: vanilla does taste good, and the giant crocodile could fit in the little box only because it wasn't blown up yet. Again, Keller captures one of childhood's real experiences, her simply drawn animal/preschoolers adroitly capturing Henry's consternation and subsequent pleasure.
