Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* In an infectious, bouncy rhythm, Fogliano playfully captures the antsy excitement for birthdays in a pitch-perfect kid voice. In between a refrain of When's my birthday? / Where's my birthday? / How many days until / my birthday? Fogliano's verses cover food and presents, who to invite, and, of course, the all-important cake. Robinson's thickly painted collage illustrations feature cheery children and friendly creatures in birthday hats, with always happy faces enjoying the delights described in Fogliano's lines. Amid all the anticipation and happy planning, the text takes a realistically worried turn when the waiting seems so endless that the narrator wonders whether he or she will have a birthday at all. Luckily, after a near-sleepless night, the day finally arrives: It's the daytime! / Here's my birthday! / Happy happy! / Hee! Hee! Hee! Robinson's signature style bold collages depicting kids and animals in blocky shapes is the ideal vehicle for Fogliano's frolicsome text, and the two together evoke a quintessentially childlike glee, which adults will recognize and little ones will revel in. There might be a more perfect picture book about birthdays out there, but you'd be hard-pressed to find it.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Birthdays are hard to wait for, but now there's a book to read while counting down the days. Fogliano (Old Dog Baby Baby) starts with a stomping beat ("When's my birthday?/ where's my birthday?/ how many days until my birthday?") and understands that, for young birthday hopefuls, excitement means movement: "Will we dance around and round?/ will we jump and jump and jump?" Using simple cutout forms, Caldecott Honor artist Robinson (Last Stop on Market Street) shows children with varied hair and skin colors indulging in birthday fantasies. One skates on a gigantic cake (would that be icing skating?), another contemplates an enormous gift, still another surveys a table laden with food. Robinson's collages play with scale, contrasting giant birthday props with a spread of insects and a snail celebrating the occasion atop a dandelion-every living thing has a birthday. As the special day approaches, one child vows to stay up all night: "In the morning it's my birthday!/ I'm not sleeping till my birthday." (She falls asleep, of course.) Fogliano captures with uncanny skill a child's voice, enthusiasm, and spontaneity. Ages 3-6. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
