The Horn Book Guide
“Filled with satirical moments, the watercolor illustrations add to the madcap comedy.” —The Horn Book Guide
School Library Journal
“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.”
—School Library Journal
“Ross’ zany cartoon-style illustrations capture the princess’ impulsive, egocentric nature and reveal a subplot regarding a lost locket. Children will identify with the princess’ desire to have more than one birthday per year, and adults will appreciate the resolution.” —Booklist
