The birthday invitation by Lucy Rowland and Laura Hughes
Bloomsbury, 2017. ISBN 9781408862995
(Age: Junior primary) Recommended. Who would believe that losing just one birthday invitation could lead to such surprising results? Who will catch the invitation that Ella dropped? A wizard, a princess, even a pilot flying high above.
Planning a birthday party is always so much fun, but never did Ella anticipate such a colourful bunch of new friends turning up to help her celebrate her special day, even a pirate's parrot.
This brilliantly illustrated book is a rollicking rhyme, skilfully crafted and a delight to read.
I would recommend it for Junior Primary children who all enjoy a fun and imaginative tale.
