Happy Birthday I'm 3

Matteo Faglia. Kane/Miller Book Publishers, $7.95 (48pp) ISBN 978-1-929132-09-6

Bonnie's big day gets special treatment in the paper-over-board Happy Birthday I'm 3 by Matteo Faglia. Painted on newsprint, Sophie Fatus's illustrations cast a thin veil over an Italian language paper. The hand-size volume provides space to paste a picture of party guests, list gifts and draw the birthday cake; opening and closing pages serve as a scrapbook. Also available: Happy Birthday I'm 4.
