The Birthday surprise is a cute Burly & Grum Tales by Kate Tenbeth and Rob Jones (Illustrator).
It's Burly birthday and Mike his friend wants to take him to the beach for the day. Mike is a Angel who lives in the forest. He drops off Burly and Grum on to a deserted island all by themselves with plans to bring others later in the day.
Of course Grum finds trouble to get into. In fact he releases a bank robber from what he thinks is hunters.
Burly and Grum make new friends on the island and have a good time at the beach.
The pictures are cute and fit the story very well. It has humor,talking animals,bank robbers,police detective and his daughter,angels and groblins. Something for everyone.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Librarything.
