The reissue of a classic first storybook to celebrate Helen Oxenbury's work. A little girl chooses a birthday present for her friend John, all by herself.

John doesn't want to give her one of his birthday balloons, but his mum persuades him. A warm and funny depiction of a girl's first experience of a birthday party. Helen Oxenbury's First Storybooks perfectly describe the small but memorable events of childhood. The words are a delight and are perfect for reading aloud, while the pictures offer warm, affectionate visions of a child's world, which parents and children will instantly recognize and love.
