I loved this book so much and I will be emailing the author because I loved it so much! It is almost my birthday (October 20) and I am so excited because we can celebrate it soon and I just read this book! 

This book is about how Charlie's mom told him that his birthday was just around the corner, but he was not excited. I don't understand how he wasn't excited, doesn't everyone get excited for their birthday? Well, I take that back because my mom doesn't get excited for her birthdays, but that's okay because she is 21 forever (or so she says)! Anyway, back to the book. Charlie is kind of a bully and is mean to everyone. He decides to write to everyone that he was mean to and invited them all to his party. Everyone forgave him and he had a great birthday party! 


I really enjoyed this book and it helped me learn to be nice to people and forgive others when they do wrong. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 9.
