The day before Kipper's birthday he prepares his party invitations and makes a cake. He invites everyone to his party tomorrow, but doesn't deliver the invitations until the next day. When exactly is my birthday, wonders Kipper. Is it today or was it yesterday? Maybe it's tomorrow! However, when his friends finally arrive, they bring the perfect present.
This is a brilliant story for children learning about past, present and future as well as for any child who loves birthdays!
