Description


From the internationally admired, award-winning creator of many celebrated picture books, including On a Magical Do-Nothing Day, A Lion in Paris, and The Wonderful Fluffy Little Squishy, comes a story about lonely Harold Snipperpot, a seven-year-old boy who has never had a real birthday party, until now.

Harold is turning seven years old. He’s never had a real birthday party. That’s because his parents are too grumpy.

But this year they feel bad for Harold. “We’ll call up Mr. Ponzio,” says Harold’s mother. So they do, and Mr. Ponzio agrees to help, “The party will be absolutely extraordinary, Mrs. Snipperpot.” When everyone arrives at the Snipperpots', everyone—especially Harold—is absolutely flabbergasted. It truly is a party like no other.

Full of surprises, every animal imaginable, and magical moments galore, Harold Snipperpot’s Best Disaster Ever is a party unlike any other.

Perfect for fans of other shocking shindigs such as Secret Pizza Party by Adam Rubin and May I Bring a Friend? by Beatrice Schenk de Regniers.

Praise For…


“Nuanced, wonderfully observant mixed-media artwork by Alemagna (On a Magical Do-Nothing Day) gives this story its magic.”
— Publishers Weekly

“Readers will squeal with delight at Alemagna’s montage of misbehaving animals... This story hits all the right notes for young readers, being more than chaotic silliness, and the details worked into Alemagna’s mixed-media collage illustrations are extraordinarily captivating.”
— Booklist

“Alemagna’s striking mixed media illustrations have a 3-D look, reminiscent of Brian Wildsmith’s work. Close inspection reveals intricate patterns and humorous details.”
— School Library Journal

“...every child can relate to Harold’s wish for something spectacular on his birthday...Highly recommended.”
— School Library Journal
