The Best Birthday Present Ever

Publisher: Macmillan

When Bear sends out invitations to his birthday party, his guests compete with one another to buy the best present in the toyshop. But Squirrel wants to find something different.

On the day of the party, as the presents are opened and each one is better than the last, Squirrel starts to get nervous as his gift looks rather poor in comparison. He needn't have worried though as Bear is thrilled and Squirrel's thoughtful gift really is the best birthday present ever.

In an increasingly materialistic culture, this picture book is a charming depiction of friendship and imaginative play. Endearing illustrations beautifully demonstrate the joy to be found in the little things in life.
