MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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!
