Today is a very special day: Peter’s birthday! Mom and Dad are going to great lengths to make sure it’s as enjoyable as possible, even inviting all of Peter’s animal friends to the party. But things get difficult as the guests get bigger. The rhinoceros can’t get his rear end in the door, the giraffe can’t stand up without hitting the ceiling, and there’s no room at all for the elephant! But parties are about providing a good time for all, even if it means literally raising the roof!
Children will love riding along with whales, bears, and floating tortoises on this ridiculous adventure that’s all about sharing joy and giving of oneself to others. Hsu Yu-Jung’s thick, sharp lines invoke traditional Chinese woodcut aesthetics within their modern touch, lending a deep artistic sentiment to the lively images.
