ISBN 0590442791 - There is a review on Amazon that says that the book shows "how they grew up" - that is inaccurate. The book is about one day, Clifford's birthday, and the party his family has for him.
For parents who worry about the messages in the books their kids read, there is a potentially bothersome message here. Clifford's friends don't bother to show up for the party because they couldn't find gifts good enough for Clifford. If you, like me, just want books to entertain your kids and hook them on reading, Clifford's Birthday Party is worth picking up.
