It doesn't look very exciting, but perhaps Crispin's birthday hasn't been ruined after all ...

This is a wonderful comedy of excess Independent Another exuberant and humourous picture book from Ted Dewan, full of detail and fun. Good to read aloud The School Librarian As well as offering genuine child appeal, Dewan portrays a bleak picture of contemporary urban life strewn with litter TES
