Synopsis: Becky's hard-working mama and four older brothers and sisters try to surprise her on her eighth birthday. ‘An exceedingly warm and satisfying story of a [African-American] city family that is true to childhood.' 'NYT.

"Mama --" Becky said and waited. "My birthday's coming pretty soon. Will we have chicken-spaghetti and striped ice cream?"

Mama sighed and said, "I don't know, Becky. Things were a little better last year."

Not having something special to look forward to for a birthday was bad enough, but then the whole family seemed to turn against Becky. Life was lonely for the youngest in the family when everyone else started working on a project without her. Brother Abe even tried to keep her out of her own home during the day -- and playing baseball with Abe did not appeal to Becky.

This is a story about a very real family -- the ups and downs, the quarrels and making-ups, and it is a story of Becky's happy birthday.

About the Author: Joan Lexau is the author of many picture books for children including the My First I Can Read Book Go Away, Dog, written under the pen name, Joan Nodset, and illustrated by Paul Meisel. Ms. Lexau lives in Otisville, NY.

John Wilson is the editor of Books & Culture, the Christian review of literature, and editor-at-large for its parent magazine, Christianity Today.
