This book is about Hooper Humperdink. Throughout the whole book we witness multiple people going to a party, but he is not invited. It seems as though everyone in town is allowed to go except for him. At the very end, the narrator realizes that everyone in town from A to Z have been invited to the party. The narrator would not want anyone to miss the party so Hooper ends up being invited and is very excited.

I love this book!!! The whole time, the narrator is speaking of the huge, fun, party or carnival that he is having. He talks about the activities and festivities and how he is going to invite every single person he knows and more; however, the whole time he is also reminding us that he is not going to invite Hooper Humperdink—because for some reason, he just doesn’t like him very much. The illustrations really make the book—they show all of these people and all of this fun, and Hooper Humperdink standing on the outside looking in and appearing very sad and hurt because of this rejection. But…in the end, the host decides to invite Hooper after all! This book teaches children about acceptance and inclusion—it makes them feel sad for Hooper and teaches them that no one deserves to feel like that so include everyone and do not leave anyone out!
