This book did not carry the "zing" that makes all of Dr. Seuss' books so loveable. I think it was partly due to the new illustrations. They did not match the Seuss style of zingy and zangy. The pictures felt flat to me.
All through the book I waited to find out something good that kept the unknown person from inviting Hooper to his birthday party, but it never comes. The narrator simply does not like Hooper and instead invites EVERY other child available. In the end, he allows Hooper to come because the party is simply too good to miss. I am disappointed in the message this sends and that they felt this book needed new illustration.
It's fun to have all the names with each letter of the alphabet!
