The Birthday

Available in English for the first time ever, this timeless and charming Swiss children’s classic chronicles Lisette’s seventy-sixth birthday celebration, planned with much ado by a menagerie of pets and barnyard animals. The animals are led by two curious cats, Mauli and Ruli, as well as Bello the dog. Vintage illustrations in pen and ink with splashes of color add to the book’s rustic appeal. It’s a tale of friendship and kindness, with just the right amount of mischief involved.
