The Birthday Ball

With all the change in my life right now (I wrote this review several years ago), I find myself gravitating towards books that feel like familiar friends.

I remember listening to The Birthday Ball by Lois Lowry years ago with my children and enjoying it. I find it ironic I listened to it again so soon after listening to Ingrid Law’s books (Savvy, Scumble & Switch).

Lowry is a master of playful alliteration and rhyme which feels a part of the story, instead of distracting or an add-on.

The Birthday Ball is a fun, light-hearted book with a happy ending. Plus, it features a fluffy palace cat named Delicious – and all the fun rhyming to go with it (nutritious, malicious, etc., etc.)

Highly recommended for elementary school and up.
