About the Author:

Barbara Reid is one of Canada's leading illustrator/authors, and the creator of such bestsellers as The Subway Mouse, Read Me a Book and Two by Two. Her books have won every major children's book award, and in 1988 she became the first Canadian to win the UNICEF-Ezra Jack Keats International Award for Excellence in Children's Book Illustration.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-Polished, combed, and dressed in best bib and tucker, a young girl and her sister are dragged to a family gathering. The party gets off to a rough start with unavoidable kisses from icky Aunt Joan and initial shyness among the children, but the ice soon thaws during a lively game of sharks. Before long, all of the kids are having too much fun to even think about eating, but the buffet calls and then there's Gran's 90th birthday cake. Finally, they all join in a game of twilight hide-and-seek, hoping to postpone the inevitable because now they don't want to go home. Reid's rollicking verses, teamed with her signature Plasticine illustrations, capture the universal joys of a large extended family. The text rolls along at breathtaking pace as the children leap and laugh and their party clothes are reduced to grass-stained rumples. The artwork explodes with the energy used in playing, eating, and celebrating. Personalities burst from the pages and readers will enjoy seeing the mood of the narrator move from resentment and nervousness to happiness and eventually exhaustion. Storyhour participants will join in on the variable refrain-"We laugh till it hurts at the party" or "Leave room for dessert at the party" and, finally, "Oh, what a great time,/what a wonderful time,/such a very late time/at the party." Definitely an event to revisit and remember.
