Albert's Birthday

with audio recording

Illustrated by Leslie Tryon

About The Book

Albert, the indomitable, hardworking, dedicated duck who has appeared in seven previous books by Leslie Tryon, has been a busy duck indeed. He has built an alphabet for the school playground (Albert's Alphabet), directed the school play (Albert's Play), organized a school field trip (Albert's Field Trip), and coached the Pleasant Valley baseball team (Albert's Ballgame). He has helped with the big Thanksgiving celebration (Albert's Thanksgiving), gathered the kids together to meet a special visitor on Christmas Eve (Albert's Christmas), and solved the mystery of the missing pumpkins (Albert's Halloween).
And now it's time for Albert to be celebrated in return. It's his birthday, and Patsy Pig has organized his surprise party as only she can, right down to the last detail. But will the one detail she forgets ruin the whole affair?
Once again Leslie Tryon brings us Albert and the Pleasant Valley gang in a story full of warmth and humor, accompanied by her marvelously detailed artwork.
