Publishers Weekly

While the title isn’t especially distinctive, this is as memorable and heartfelt as a birthday book gets. Scanlon (All the World) presents the special day through a series of questions. “What are these and what are those?” the young birthday bunny asks, pointing to clothing held up by her mother and a polo-shirted older sibling. “Fancy shoes and party clothes!” they reply, as the girl holds her skirt out while they applaud. Graegin’s (Don’t Feed the Boy) pencil and ink wash spreads show the bunny’s family and friends—foxes, owls, raccoons, and more—crowded together in one room, the children chasing after each other, the grownups looking on. “What do you mean that time just flies?” the birthday girl asks the adults curled up on the sofa with photo albums. “You’re growing up before our eyes,” they tell her, while Graegin’s faux photos show her as a swaddled infant and a just-walking toddler. This isn’t about irony; it’s pure celebration, and readers will share wholeheartedly in the pleasure. Ages 2–5. Agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. Illustrator’s agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Jan.) 2012 Reed Business Information

Editorial Reviews

* "This is as memorable and heartfelt as a birthday book gets…. This isn’tabout irony; it’s pure celebration, and readers will share wholeheartedly inthe pleasure."
* "Scanlon delivers a sweet, rhyming text to tell the story of a little bunny’s birthday in Graegin’s debut picture book…. Perhaps taking a cue from the closing line’s reference to the girl as "sweet honey bun," Graegin casts the unnamed central characters as a family of anthropomorphic bunnies,introducing a veritable peaceable kingdom of relatives and friends who come to celebrate on the special day. Graegin’s illustrations…mark her as an up-and-coming artist to watch, as they evoke a style akin to that of Peter McCarty, Laura McGee Kvasnosky and Polly Dunbar. Happy birthday to a splendid book for new birthday boys and girls."
