Description
From the creator ofa Peanut Butter & Cupcake acomesaa birthday book starring everyone's favorite dessert! What's a cupcake to do when she needs to plan her birthday party? In this hilarious, kid-friendly homage to food and birthdays, Cupcake runs through tons of ideas while her best friend, Blueberry Muffin, finds reasons why they won't work- Soup gets seasick; Donut melts in the sun; someome might get squashed during musical chairs; and Cupcake is not very good at limbo (her icing might get sliced off!). Just as Cupcake is ready to crumble, Blueberry Muffin has one last idea that just might save the day.a With laugh-out-loud visual gags (like a band made up of beans--the musical fruit, of course), this book is sure to put a birthday smile on any kid's face (and on adult faces as well). Praise fora Happy Birthday, Cupcake! - "As in his earlier picture book, Border's characters are skillfully crafted food items with basic wire limbs arranged in simple landscapes....Preschoolers will be delighted with the visual mayhem."-- Kirkus Reviews a Praise for Peanut Butter & Cupcake - "Border's witty food comedy will lure children who are hungry for clever visual entertainment."-- Publishers Weekly "(Z)any creative photographs. (A) read-aloud hit."-- School Library Journal
