I really liked this book for many reasons. This book was a very comical and fun book to read because most of the words and the entire story was made up of unrealistic characters and funny things. The language the author used was rhythmic and rhyming, which I liked a lot because it was interesting to me to see what words he would pick or make up to rhyme with certain words. The characters in the book, although make believe, were very fun and relate-able with young readers. The characters in the book talk about a special day in which you were born and teaches kids about birthdays and how on this day they are so very important. When I was reading this book I was never bored or uninterested, I always wanted to keep reading. The illustrations in the book were very creative and always went along with what the book was talking about. The colors were vibrant and never truly dull becuase the book wasn't. I think that the point of this book was to teach readers about birthdays and what kind of things happen on your birthday. The author also talks about how since you and you and on your birthday you only celebrate you, nobody else.

I would suggest this book for fifth grade and higher because there is a lot reading and alliteration that younger children would have a hard time understanding.
The book is about the birthday birds of Katroo and the amazing things they do on your birthday.
This book is a fantasy book and the genre is fiction. ( )

This is my daughter's favorite book to have read to her on her birthday - every year!
It can be a bit long for me, but I love making her happy!
If only we all lived in Katroo... ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0394800761, Hardcover)

"Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!" Since 1959, Happy Birthday to You!—Dr. Seuss’s joyous ode to individuality—has allowed readers to experience firsthand the thrill of celebrating a birthday as it is done in Katroo. Awakened by the Birthday Bird, you (the reader) are swept out of town on a Smorgasbord’s back to begin a day and night of feasting and feting in such Seussian splendor that it will take 20 days to sweep up the mess!
