Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-A perky kitten shows prospective celebrators how to prepare for their "most specialist day ever." In order to avoid sitting in a time-out because of bad manners, Lana Kittie recommends having lots of pretend birthdays first. With her toy robot, whale, and doll acting as guests, she offers advice on party invitations, wardrobe, how to properly welcome a guest, fun activities, good food, blowing out candles, and saying good-bye. The most important thing is to practice opening a present so that guests feel happy about their gifts. Good: "Wow! Underpants! I love underpants. I wear them every day!" Bad: "Yuck! Underpants. That's the worst present ever! I already have a million of those." The cheerful cartoon illustrations feature colorful borders and backgrounds. The print looks like a child's scrawl and matches the childlike artwork. This playful book presents a dull theme in a unique way that will appeal to kids. Great fun with a good message.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Here are some things I have learned:

Using comics can be a fun way to tell a story.
Revising is surprisingly satisfying, but not always easy.
Some things are fun to look at, but not fun to own.
Listening is important.
Everyone has a story.
Inspiration can be fast and fleeting.
Remember to pay attention.

Hope you have a great day!!
