In Little Pookie's fourth adventure, the cartoon pig is so excited for its birthday that it wakes its parents twice in one night. To celebrate Little Pookie's big day, Daddy makes pig-shaped pancakes, and after Little Pookie's nap (though it's the parents who really need one) it's time for more surprises. "Attention, all Pooks!/ Are you here and awake?/ The time has arrived/ for your present and cake." Birthday boys and girls should relate to Pookie's elation, while adults should appreciate the commiserating wink. Up to age 3. (May)
