Nicky wants to have a surprise party. Who is the surprise party for? It is for Nicky himself! He gets his friend Albert to invite all the kids, bring the cake, and make sure there are lots of presents. Nicky thinks nothing can go wrong. But he is in for a BIG surprise!
Nicky plans his own surprise party but in the end there is an even bigger surprise. I would recommend this book for readers transitioning from picture books to chapter books.
