Description

 

A timeless Governor General's Award-winning classic!

In this timeless story, Barbara Reid explores the simple fun and wonderful family togetherness that is inspired by a lively backyard party.

Through the eyes of the children in attendance, she muses on the glorious childhood pleasures of running around freely, as parents are preoccupied with conversation and food. In gorgeous colour and Plasticine detail, she invites us all to enjoy the games, the cake, the conversation and to endure kisses from Aunt Joan! Truly a perfect rendering of a chaotic but loving family event.

Originally published in 1997, this Governor General's Award-winning classic has won the admiration of all who have read it.
