Synopsis

"For monkeys like us, Bananas will please. But for you, birthday mouse, Here's a big chunk of . . ."

Birthday cake? Mud pie? No, it's cheese!

And it's just one of the wonderful presents Mouse gets at her birthday party in this funny sequel to the PBS Storytime favorite Dinner at the Panda Palace.

Can you guess what the three pigs bring? Is it made of straw or wood or brick? How about Elephant? What is his present for Mouse? Children will love using the rhymes to figure out what gift they'll find when they turn the page. And the best surprise of all comes at the end when a special visitor arrives—because friendship is what this party is all about!

Complete with cake, candles, goody bags, and games, Stephanie Calmenson and Doug Cushman throw a party you won't want to leave!
