Ricky’s Birthday

Guido van Genechten. Clavis (IPG, dist.), $16.95 (28p) ISBN 978-1-60537-119-1
All of Ricky the rabbit’s friends are coming to his birthday party—but one friend, Annie, is missing. Turns out, she’s playfully hiding in the woods for Ricky and his guests to find. After carrot pancakes and gift-giving (Daddy gives Ricky a magic set), Ricky contentedly reflects on the fun he’s had: “It’s wonderful to celebrate your birthday, Ricky thinks. And it’s also a little bit like magic: in just one day you age a whole year!” Van Genechten’s anthropomorphic rabbits carry quiet dignity with their chunky bodies and smudgy features. This high-spirited, no-drama birthday celebration should assuage any pre-party jitters readers might have. Ages 3–5. (Dec.)
