It’s your birthday and something special is about to happen – you are going to be visited by the birthday bugs. The first ones arrive in a box. Open it up and a colorful bundle of goggle-eyed balloon bugs pop out. Later another box arrives and in it you will find an apple full of Birthday Worms each of which is eager to play with you and to celebrate your special day. Next a Birthday Card Bug arrives ready to sing you a silly little song.

As you turn the pages of this funny “pop-up party” you will be presented with lots of wonderful boxes or envelopes to open. Inside each one there is a delightful birthday surprise which is sure to make every birthday boy or girl smile with pleasure and “ooh” with surprise.

With lots of bright colors and unique pop-up designs, David A. Carter has created a very special pop-up book which is sure to make any birthday child feel very special indeed.
