Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A young entrepreneur chronicles her burgeoning party-planning venture in this upbeat early chapter book series opener. Priya's guiding principles include "making people happy and helping animals." Her first client, Layla Aunty (Priya's mom's best pal), offers an excellent opportunity to attain both goals. The thoughtful, eco-friendly girl organizes a bespoke birthday bash complete with pumpkin-filled samosas, decorations handmade from recycled paper, and an invitation to contribute a donation to save endangered quokkas. Priya's infectious enthusiasm shines through the diary format of this book, as does her relatable anxiety when unexpected surprises inevitably arise. Jaleel's full-color, eye-catching digital cartoons feature illustrated to-do lists, a neighborhood map, and washi-taped, annotated photographs. Definitions are woven seamlessly into the conversational text: "Now that I have my own business, I want to be professional. That means I have to figure out what I need to do. Then I have to get it done." DIY instructions for making a paper-chain curtain are included, along with discussion questions. This series opener gets an enjoyable party started for beginning readers."
