PreSchool-K—It's Cow's birthday, and Pig and Mouse decide to bake a cake. They follow the standard recipe, mixing eggs, flour, and sugar, but Duck wants to add a turnip. Outvoted, the duck nevertheless persists in trying to contribute the special ingredient, even as the others top off the finished treat with candles. A surprised Cow is overjoyed to be feted, and on seeing her friends hold up their gifts exclaims: "Is that what I think it is? Oh boy, this is the best birthday ever…a turnip." Told in simple language, this whimsical story is illustrated with somewhat abstract cartoon drawings in bright colors and strong black lines. Some of the spreads have a cluttered appearance that may be a bit confusing to the very young, but children will delight in the humor.—G. Alyssa Parkinson, Highland Township Library, MI

It is cow's birthday, and the celebration is about to begin. Pig and Mouse are making Cow the best birthday cake ever. They mix flour, sugar, and eggs into a big bowl. Duck wants to mix in a turnip, which Pig and Mouse adamantly refuse to do so. How can you mix a turnip into a birthday cake? As the cake is baked and about to be decorated, Duck keeps insisting that they add the turnip, but the other animals refuse to consider this suggestion. They ice and decorate a beautiful cake which they feel Cow is guaranteed to love. The end of the story has a funny twist: Cow arrives at the surprise party and is thrilled to receive a turnip; he is not quite sure what do with the birthday cake. Children and parents will enjoy this humorous story, as well as the cartoon-like drawings which bring it alive in splendid color and details. This book brings new humor and fun to an old topic, birthday celebrations. Reviewer: Suzanna E.

Who knew the word "turnip" could be so hysterical. My son enjoy this book during the toddler program at our local library and he enjoyed it so much, I ended up getting it.
It is an absolutely adorable book
