From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-- Henry, who last celebrated Henry's Fourth of July (Greenwillow, 1985), observes a frustrating birthday. His cake is vanilla, not the requested chocolate. The presents don't look promising; one kid even leaves his gift at home. Henry takes his disappointments with some grace, for as long as he can. Blowing out the candles he wishes "that this were someone else's birthday." But the day turns around. He loves his presents and the cake, he has to admit, is quite good. Later Mama comforts and assures him that he can spend a whole year thinking of a better wish. Even with the cozy ending, this story of clouds with silver linings seems awry. Unlike Shirley Hughes' Alfie Gives a Hand (Lothrop, 1984), in which the child acts out on the special day, here the family and friends heap too much turmoil on Henry. Full-color watercolor and black ink are used in Keller's familiar spare style. Pages have lots of white space and there is a deft use of line to bring humor and personality to the mice characters. The typeface is easy to read, large, and graceful. Solid first-grade readers can manage the text. --Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA
