If it is just a few days until your birthday, and your mother says you can invite anyone you like to come over to play, be careful! If you don t watch out, you might soon be having the craziest party ever. Before you know it, night could come and go and a new day could begin, and the dancing might still be going strong. In a celebration of neighbors and diversity, an open-ended party invitation results in a raucous gathering of children, pets, and parents (plus salsa dancers and a reggae band!), all feasting on food from all over the world. This is a humorous and irresistibly joyful cautionary tale."

Review quote

"If a few days before your birthday your mother should say, 'I think I'm going to bake a cake and buy some juice. Why don't you ask one of your friends to come over to play?' You might do what I did and remember that Jack has a really cool brother. And then you might say, 'Well, could Jack bring someone and maybe some food, too?'
And then your mother, feeling a bit distracted, might answer, 'Why not? Of course. Invite whoever you'd like.'"
