“A treat that will make any birthday (or storytime) a little happier.”

“Satisfyingly humorous and sure to gift readers with guffaws … a gift of a book to open again and again.”

“This antic step-by-step guide at first plays it for laughs…but the always vibrant Lichtenheld and Ferry turn sweetly serious for the moment we’ve been waiting for, with a gentle reminder: “Don’t forget that wish ends in shhhhhh.”

“A buoyantly told tale…”

“Lichtenheld’s exuberant mixed-media illustrations offer all the fun of a birthday fete…”

“A wonderful read-aloud for any time of year.”
