Chapin, Tom and John Forster The Backwards Birthday Party, Illustrated by Chuck Groenink, Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2015. $17.99
Everything’s “out of whack” at this backwards birthday party. They eat the cake first, heat up the ice cream, and say “goodbye” when everyone comes. This is an entertaining story of a small child’s imagination where they grow one year younger instead of older.
