"Birthday Rules" Helps Kids Make the Most of a Birthday Celebration

MINNEAPOLIS--()--Popular children’s book author Laurie Friedman and illustrator Teresa Murfin follow “Thanksgiving Rules” and “Back-to-School Rules with “Birthday Rules,” published by Carolrhoda Books, a division of Lerner Publishing Group. Kids will learn how to have a birthday that rules by following a few basic guidelines in this amusing new picture book.

When it comes to birthdays, no one knows how to party like Percy! Just follow his simple rules — like #2 “Happy times call for happy measures” and #9 “Be careful what you wish for” — to make the most of your celebration.

Even when the cake has been consumed and the presents put away, Percy still has a trick up his sleeve to make a birthday extra special! With whimsical illustrations, sly humor and rhyming text, “Birthday Rules” and Percy’s joyous enthusiasm will make readers of all ages even more excited to celebrate their next birthday!

About the Author
Laurie Friedman is the author of two series — the popular Mallory chapter books and The Mostly Miserable Life of April Sinclair for middle grade readers — as well as many picture books including “Thanksgiving Rules”; “Back-to-School Rules”; and “Love, Ruby Valentine.” Her favorite birthday celebration was when she turned seven, when her mother made a cake shaped like a teddy bear and Laurie made her first and only TV appearance, on “The Bozo Show.”

About the Illustrator
Teresa Murfin is the illustrator of several picture books, including “I’m Not Afraid of This Haunted House,” “Thanksgiving Rules,” and Back-to-School Rules.” She lives and works in Wales, UK. She remembers sneakily seeking out her birthday presents in her parents’ wardrobe. She recommends perhaps not doing this, as you may ruin the surprise on the big day!
