Lucille the Pig, introduced in Lucille’s Snowsuit, is back and it’s her birthday. She gets to open one present early: a tutu, crown, and ballet shoes from her grandparents. Lucille spends all the days before her birthday rehearsing for a performance for her family. Then her older brother and sister try to steal the limelight. Lucille, of course, manages to upstage them, and has a very happy birthday after all. A funny and right-on-target book with great appeal to young children.
