Eddie is five and a half, and thinks she is the only one in her family who isn't really good at something. So when she hears her little sister say "birthday--Mommy--fluffy--little--squishy," it's extra important for her to find this amazing present before anyone else does. So, gregarious, charming, clever little Eddie goes all around the neighborhood to all her fabulous friends--the florist, the chic boutique owner, the antiques dealer, and even the intimidating butcher--to find one. It's a magical adventure that draws on Eddie's special gifts, ones that she herself learns to appreciate.

Beatrice Alemagna was born in Italy in 1973. At the age of eight, she decided that whatever the cost she would become a "painter and writer of novels" when she grew up.

This Batchelder Award winning title (translated from French) is a delight, with intricate and adorable images of life in a French neighborhood, as a young girl searches for the perfect present for her mom. Ages 3-6

a very stupid no-story story, my daughter was making up better stories when she was 4.
It also looks like the author is a militant vegetarian - the butcher got vilified out of the blue - definitely anti-omnivore attitude. All the shop-keepers were nice, and the butcher threatens the little girl with a bloody knife - what kind of idiocy is that in a book intended for really young children?

The book is not recommended for any age, read it to your children if you want them to grow up into idiots.
