Summary
It's a time of questions, wishes, and a search for hidden presents as Lionel prepares to celebrate his birthday. He wonders what it will be like to be older, if there's any way to be sure a birthday wish will come true, and which is more important-getting the right present, or being surprised? New and returning fans will smile and recognize a little of themselves on every page of this latest episode of Stephen Krensky and Susanna Natti's wisely funny, true-to-life series. Illustrated by Susanna Natti.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 1-3. The ninth book about Lionel in the Dial Easy-to-Read series is a warm, funny collection of three chapters. Lionel wants a special jet pack for his birthday, and he gives his older sister, Louise, strong hints about the "surprise" present she should buy him. In another chapter, Lionel buries a time capsule with things from his life, so that someday he can dig it up and remember what he was like. In the final chapter, Lionel practices taking big breaths, so he can blow out the candles on his birthday cake and make a wish, a wish Louise ensures will come true. Told mostly in dialogue in short sentences, and illustrated with clear, lovely pictures in pencil and bright colors, this book introduces new readers to the joy of chapters that build together to make a whole story. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2003 Booklist"
