My Lucky Birthday by Keiko Kasza - ADVISABLE

Kasza, Keiko.  My Lucky Birthday.  PICTURE BOOK.  G. P. Putnam Sons (Penguin),  2013.  $16.99.  Content: G.   A piglet knocks on Alligator Al’s door on his birthday.  Al feels so lucky and knows that the piglet will make a lovely meal.  Before he can eat the piglet, the piglet convinces Al that a great guy like him needs a birthday cake, decorations, and friends (piglet calls his own friends).  When piglet’s friends show up, Al begins to wonder whether or not it is his lucky birthday.  It’s a charming little story with a fun surprise twist. The illustrations are expressive and enchanting.
