Reading books to my five year old, I found this much more enjoyable than other recent chapter books for children I've read to him. The Littles family is well written. Here, Granny Little is feeling down because of her age. The problem feels real and not fanciful. The family pulls together to try to help her out by throwing a birthday party for her. Some of the difficulties they come across feel like real obstacles.

This has children with adults that are involved in their lives, rather than in th

A very fun reading experience. I liked when Lucy Little used Henry's(the son of the Bigg Family) blue feather to make into a pillow as a birthday gift for Grandma little. They planned to party under a nice white flower tree called a Catalpa tree. They even figure out where to have swimming pool which was the drain water area where the water pour into the sewage. I noticed they even created a diving board!

Though this book was interesting and sweet, it didn't engage my children as much as many of the chapter books/novels we've read together. They certainly enjoyed it. I think the funniest part is that the Littles have tails. They always look out of place in the pictures.

I remember enjoying these books a lot more when I was in 3rd grade. Reading them out loud to my kids this year was... not as fun as I remember having when I discovered them for myself way back when.

I'm not sure what changed. I still love the idea of the cute little people living in the walls, but even my 6 yr old got bored while I was reading them, and when she was done after 20 minutes, I was more than happy to put a bookmark in and wait until the next day to read another couple of chapters.

I liked it. They have a swimming pool in a rain gutter and the surprise party is for granny because she's turning 80 and doesn't like it.

We read these books together during breakfast every morning. The kids love them as much as I did as a kid

Granny Little is turning 80 years old. Will a surprise party be just the thing to cheer her up?

My favorite part? Honestly I really love the idea of swimming in the rain gutter. What fun!

I have loved these books since I was a child and am enjoying sharing them with my children! In this one, the Littles throw a surprise party for Granny's 80th birthday!

Could this have been published in the late 70s/early 80s as The Littles Surprise Party? That was the book I used to have.
