Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3–Walter is having a birthday party complete with cake, ice cream, and horseback riding, and his best friend, Iris, can hardly wait for the day to arrive. They bathe Rain and comb her mane, Iris makes her a special birthday medallion, and Walters parents assure him that the festivities will run smoothly. Walter is so busy making things just right that he doesnt realize that Rain is ever so close to giving birth. This easy reader is chock-full of universal kid banter, and the child-friendly illustrations in pen and ink provide the perfect backdrop as these two pals go about their everyday lives among family and friends.–Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL

From Booklist

Gr. 1-3. As a special treat on Walter's birthday, all his friends will get to ride his horse, Rain. But on the big day Rain gives the kids a surprise: a foal. This tenth easy-to-read chapter book about best friends Iris and Walter once again relates a tender story in plain, lyrical words and brightly colored pen-and-ink artwork, both joyful and touching. In a sweet climax, Iris and Walter name the foal Surprise. Everyone sings Happy Birthday, "and Walter felt shy / and a little embarrassed, / but very loved." Children will want to read this again and again. Hazel Rochman

It's Walters' birthday. he is having a party. He plans to have all of his frinds ride his pony at the party. He is very surprised that his horse has a pony on his birthday! HE really got a special surprise!

We highly recommend this entire series. They are great for beginning readers. The chapters are short making the reader feel like they have really done well!

Walter has sent out birthday invitations to all his friends. There will be cake, ice cream and horseback riding.

Walter's friend, Iris, is so excited about the party that she makes a special surprise for Walter's horse, Rain. She can't wait to ride her!

But, on the day of Walter's party, it is Rain who delivers the biggest surprise of all!

Horse lovers will especially enjoy this uniquely illustrated book.
