THE BIRTHDAY PARTY

KIRKUS REVIEW

David was bored. He'd been "everywhere" -- to the beach, to the corner -- but not to a birthday party. He comes home to an apparently deserted house. Then he opens the dining room door-and there it in- a surprise party for David. Tiny drawings by Maurice Sendak against a backwash of ochre depicts the world of the small fry with crisp charm. Guaranteed a hit for the 3 to 5 year olds.
