Synopsis

Happy Birthday, Humphrey!

"It was a very special day.
It was Humphrey's birthday!"

Getting ready for his very own party is lots of fun for Humphrey, especially when he is wearing his favorite birthday present-a real superhero suit! Humphrey can't wait for the guests to arrive, or for the games and presents and lovely things to eat. When everyone does come, Humphrey feels a little shy, and even though it is his special day and he is such a big boy now, sometimes he still gets upset. But Mommy and Daddy and Lottie all help Humphrey to feel better, and his birthday party ends just the way it should-with cake and singing!
