SUMMARY: Dozens of fairytale characters have gotten together to make a birthday cake for someone special. On the journey to the birthday boy's house, you are invited to spy and name the many characters.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations are very colorful and full of details. They are too busy for the age group this book was written for. There are dozens of people on a page making it more difficult to find and name the characters.

THE GOOD: This story invites you to learn fairytale characters and to find them among the pages. This is fun. This book can be a springboard for other fairytale stories. There are some nice prepositions for the little ones to learn such as up the hill, down the hill, and across the bridge. Because there are so many characters, this book can be looked at over and over to spy the characters.
THE NOT AS GOOD: There is really no storyline here other than a cake is made and then brought to the birthday boy.
