From Publishers Weekly:

Everyone gets invitations to Kate's party. Everyone, it seems, but Lizzie. She offers Kate carrot sticks, hoping that she'll be invited after all, but all Kate gives her are raisins. On the day of the party it rains and Lizzie still feels terrible. So she goes for a walk and finds a friendAmanda, who wasn't invited to the party either. They spend the day together, busily baking, dressing up and having lunch. The party is forgotten. Keller once again manages to reassure children about one of the most difficult timesbeing unwanted. Some may think that Amanda's showing up like that is just a little too convenient, because feeling left out can sometimes last a long time. But the cherry-colored umbrella the girls share, as well as their identical pumpkin-hued raincoats, makes a sad occasion fey, and their resourcefulness is a lesson for anyone. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 Keller makes a child's emotion al dilemma the subject of a sensitive picture book. Lizzie is disappointed when she doesn't receive an invitation to a party even though many of her class mates are invited. On the day of the party she takes a walk and meets Aman da, a classmate who, like Lizzie, was not invited to the party, and together they spend a wonderful afternoon becoming friends. Whimsical watercolor drawings perfectly complement the simple story and capture Lizzie's varied emotions. A comforting picture book that will pro vide reassurance to preschoolers who are faced with a disappointing experi ence. Bessie Egan, Winnipeg Public Library, Manitoba, Canada
