A little boy’s unexpected guests look oddly familiar in this fanciful ode to birthdays — and big imaginations.

NOT LAST NIGHT BUT THE NIGHT BEFORE,
THREE BLACK CATS CAME KNOCKING AT THE DOOR.

And before you know it, the man in the moon is knocking, followed by three little pigs, Little Bo-peep, Miss Muffet, and many more visitors, all in a rush. But where are they going so willy-nilly, gifts in hand? Colin McNaughton’s energetic rhymes, whimsically illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark, transform one child’s quiet night into a celebration full of beloved fairy-tale characters.

Repetition and rhyming are always a winning combination for a toddler-age reader.
[SPOILER ALERT:] The birthday party finale is a fun ending.
