Otis and Sydney are two adorable bears who love to play tug of war, dress in silly costumes and play music together. This year, Otis plans to give his friend a surprise party. So he decorates the house, bakes a cake, and mails out invitations. But-oh no, he gets the date wrong! Will it still be the best birthday ever?
This is another sweet, warm and fuzzy book from the author of If You Give A.... and Jellybeans series ( and would love to see the little bears again.) I especially love Dan Andreasan's muted pen and ink illustrations which give the book an old-fashioned, 1940s feel (inlcluding their big smiling faces on the cover and the way they embrace while hopping on the trampoline!!)
