Horn Book Review

Theres no shortage of picture books about birthdays (see 2018 Boston GlobeHorn Book honoree Whens My Birthday?, rev. 9/17, for a recent recommendation), but Ferry and Lichtenheld focus on one particular element: the birthday wish. The team behind Stick and Stone (rev. 3/15) presents ten rules to guide readers and listeners when making that all-important wish. It must be your birthdayYou must have a partyThere must be singing. If it all sounds a little dull and prescriptive, dont worrythere are silly loopholes, caveats, and digressions throughout that should tickle both rule-followers and authority-questioners. When preparing to blow out the candles: You must take a deep breathUnless you are a puffer fish. If you are a puffer fish, definitely do NOT take a big breath, because then you will puff up and all your guests will be concerned. Lichtenhelds accompanying illustration shows a party-hat-wearing, breath-held, puffed-up puffer fish surrounded by worried undersea party guests. Its a buoyantly told tale, and the digitally enhanced pencil, watercolor, colored-pencil, and pastel illustrations featuring an all-animal cast (including a cameo by non-direction-following Moose from This Is a Moose) capture the festive mood of a party where friends are in abundance and wishes always come true. elissa gershowitz January/February 2019 p 76(c) Copyright 2018.
