The Birthday Party

Written by Helen Oxenbury

The Birthday Party Synopsis

The reissue of a classic first storybook to celebrate Helen Oxenbury's work. A little girl chooses a birthday present for her friend John, all by herself. She really doesn't want to give it to him, but mum enoourages her. After an enjoyable afternoon with tea, cakes and games, it's time to go home. John doesn't want to give her one of his birthday balloons, but his mum persuades him. A warm and funny depiction of a girl's first experience of a birthday party. Helen Oxenbury's First Storybooks perfectly describe the small but memorable events of childhood. The words are a delight and are perfect for reading aloud, while the pictures offer warm, affectionate visions of a child's world, which parents and children will instantly recognize and love.
