The Little Princess wants to have two birthdays, just like the Queen, which means twice as many presents every year! When she realizes how much fun two birthdays are, she decides she wants three, then four. But the more birthdays she has, the less special they are. Perhaps having one birthday a year isn’t so boring after all.

PreSchool-Grade 1—After an especially wonderful birthday, Little Princess decides that only one per year just won't do. She speaks with the Prime Minister, who puts a second birthday on the royal calendar. But, though two are definitely better than one, this still won't do. Gradually, Little Princess celebrates her birthday every day. The parties begin with special cakes and presents galore. However, the need to stay clean and to dress up each day becomes tedious, as do the smaller cakes, the insignificant presents, and the dearth of people who can attend daily parties and afford daily gifts. Thus is born the brilliant idea of having one "special" day each year that is different from all the rest—a day in which the child can get dirty and play whatever she wants. It's declared her "unbirthday" and falls on the day she was born. Ross's bright, cheerful trademark watercolor illustrations add much humor to this already funny tale about having too much of a good thing. Children love birthday celebrations and will be delighted with this newest "Little Princess" story.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
