In his second starring role, Marigold, the fussy cat with a short fuse, sees his birthday party and magic show upended by a group of party-crashing birds, with hilarious results. For fans of the Don't Let the Pigeon series.
Marigold the cat hosts the best parties. He serves the most savory snacks and, as any party-planning puss should, always comes prepared with something up his sleeve. So when everyone gathers for Marigold's birthday bash, they are ready for something extraordinary, something . . . magical. Thankfully, Marigold has come prepared, having learned every magic trick in the book. His favorite trick of all is making things disappear. But as Marigold finds out, sometimes when an object disappears, the wrong thing might appear in its place. Say, a smattering of pesky birds who weren't invited to the party.
At every turn, Marigold's magical spectacle is derailed by a different type of bird (a finch, a pelican, an ostrich, two pigeons, three penguins, and a flock of owls to be exact) until the distractions are too much to bear, and our feline friend launches into a full-furred frenzy, making everything--and everyone--vanish from sight! With outlandish humor on every page, author-illustrator Mike Malbrough has conjured yet another magical addition to the great tradition of interruption books. Perfect for fans of Mo Willems' Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and David Ezra Stein's Interrupting Chicken.
