Happy Birthday, Danny – Book Review

Happy Birthday, Danny  – Book Review
Danny rushes to the museum. Danny is six years old today and wants to invite the dinosaur to his birthday party. The dinosaur is delighted to come!

Happy Birthday, Danny and the Dinosaur story and pictures by Syd Hoff

Danny rides his dinosaur friend out of the museum. On the way home he picks up all his friends and they ride on the back of the dinosaur.

The dinosaur tells Danny that today he is one million and one day old. “Then it can be your party too!”says Danny.

At Danny’s house they get to help hang balloons and then Danny’s mother gives out party hats.

Two of the guests sing a lovely song, but when the dinosaur wants to sing it doesn’t sound very good and everyone covers their ears.

Everyone gets a bowl of ice cream, but the dinosaur gets the whole carton of ice cream for himself.

When they blow out the candles they wish that they can be together next year on their birthdays also.

“This was the best birthday ever” they both say.
