Brightly illustrated story of a boy in a wheelchair's celebration of Basant.

As the older of two sisters, I not only loved this, but totally identified with the main character--a little girl whose mom makes her take her li'l sis to a friend's birthday party. Ugh, Mom! Why?!

The mom in this story actually doesn't know about the custom of celebrating birthdays in the United States, which should be an intriguing point for most young American readers. Some people don't celebrate birthdays? Really?

The central conflict in this occurs when the middle sister eats most of the oldest sister's birthday party lollipop. The illustrations hilariously show the angry chase that ensues, culminating in the oldest sister throwing the lollipop under the couch in frustration. Then the middle sister fishes it out and eats the rest. Gross! Funny!

In a move not often seen in picture books, the story elapses over an entire year (maybe two--we see the youngest sister grow up noticeably) which allows us to see the development of the characters. When the middle sister is told she has to take the youngest to a birthday party, you'll be surprised what happens.

A fantastic book about fairness, maturity, and sibling relations.

I have to admit that I nearly tossed this book aside in fury about 3/4 of the way through. Glad I didn't, because all of my issues were resolved in a very good way.

I would recommend this book to any age of elementary students. This book is about siblings and fairness when it comes to birthday parties. This would be good in the classroom because it is something that students with siblings can relate to and shows that in life not everything will be fair and equal.
