Description

Tomorrow is Gloria's birthday, and Frances is not happy about it. "That's how it is, " she says. "Your birthday is always the one that is not now." Frances does not want to be a part of any celebration that is not for her, let alone one for her little sister. But when Frances realizes that she is the only one not giving Gloria a present, she rises to the occasion and decides to give Gloria a gift worth two whole allowances. Buying the present is easy for Frances, but actually parting with the coveted gift proves to be a whole other matter. In this charming and reassuring ctory, readers will sympathize with Frances's struggle over Gloria's present. Original artist Lillian Hoban has now reillustrated this classic story with beautiful, glowing full-color illustrations that will give Frances's many fans another reason to celebrate.
