by Salome Kingsley
As Natty’s 5th birthday approaches, she hopes to eat her cake on her mother’s precious, off-limits china on the day of her birthday. When the much-anticipated day finally comes, Natty blows out her candles as she also wishes she were a grown-up. In this delightful comical story, Natty finds herself in a great predicament that will leave the readers wondering and guessing until the very end. It is also a fun read for both children and adults alike in exploring a child’s point of view through Natty’s eyes and in teaching children positive moral values and of the importance of honesty and respect through this evocative yet light-hearted tale.
