When's My Birthday?

(1) PS Illustrated by Christian Robinson. In her rhythmic, stream-of-consciousness text, Fogliano captures the intensity of children's feelings about birthdays by repeating the word birthday with a playful obsessiveness: "when's my birthday? / where's my birthday? / how many days until / my birthday?" Robinson mixes his signature cut-paper and paint style with photo-collage elements, giving an added layer of texture. The tall, narrow trim size mimics the shape of a birthday card.
