All Patrick wants for his birthday is a perfect FOOD party.

But why did Karter arrive dressed as a FOOT?
Patrick learns a valuable lesson in patience, embracing chaos, and most of all that family isn’t perfect.

Patrick likes everything to be just-so, which is why he likes to cook. The meals he makes are always “exquisite,” “delicious,” and “absolutely perfect.” So when his birthday rolls around, Patrick knows exactly what he wants to do. However, Patrick’s big brother, Russ, is not perfect. When Russ makes a mistake on Patrick’s party invitation, Patrick thinks his birthday is ruined. But is it?

Readers will delight in this warm celebration of self-expression, acceptance, and brotherly love.

Praise for Patrick and the Not So Perfect Party

“Children will laugh over the hilarious ending; indeed, they’ll giggle their way through this uproarious book—and perhaps realize that learning to be a bit flexible can be a lot of fun.”
