Description

It's Gran's birthday, and the whole family is celebrating with a big party! While the adults enjoy the festivities, the children have their own kind of fun! There are hiding places to find, fabulous make-believe games to play, delicious food to eat, and a scrumptious birthday cake along with a rousing family rendition of “Happy Birthday To You!” All too soon, the party is over for another year and the sleepy little partygoers are packed into the car to go home. What a wonderful time they have had! Barbara Reid's humorous, rhythmic verse perfectly captures all the fun and exuberance of this special family occasion and her extraordinary talent garnered her a 1997 Governor General's Award for Children's Illustration in her signature medium, Plasticine.

Editorial Review

“The Party marks another coup for award-winning Plasticine artist Barbara Reid.” (Maclean's) “Reid's latest Plasticine tour-de-force positively glows with familial feeling.” (Now Magazine) “Just when you think that she could not possibly improve her art, she does.” (The Ottawa Citizen) “...her invention and creativity seem as fresh as ever.” (Quill & Quire starred review)
