could I have done with your book about 15 years ago, when I attempted
my first children's party for my 5 year old step-son. I made all the
classic mistakes. I now have my own 2 children (3 & 5 years) and get
an awful lot of pleasure out of arranging parties for them. Even with
the experience I have gained with my step-sons, I still managed to
pick up a few more "successful party" tricks from your book. I would
certainly recommend it to others.
Lee Tait-Lemm, Australia
have just finished reading all chapters of your Guide and would
like to thank you from the bottom of my heart! Your down to
earth suggestions and your lovely sense of humour made it a
pleasure to read and I have picked up some wonderful tips...it
deserves to be bought and read by everyone with young children!
Tiffany Burstow, Australia
a fabulous guide. I began reading it in my lunch hour at work and,
because of my constant laughter, by the end of lunch about 5 others
had logged on too! You have certainly taken the stress and fear out
of planning a party, and for that I thank you from the bottom of my
Donna Campbell, New Zealand

about makes complete sense! I love it!!!

is an excellent reference. The suggestions are practical. I
will be trying them out soon.
Rhonda Hutson, Jamaica
ten year old son's birthday party is coming up this Friday. Naturally,
I've stopped sleeping and have been spending most of my time trying
to plan the disaster. Then I found your site!!! It's utterly charming;
beautiful; very funny and, most important, very useful and informative.
Now I know that I'll make it through.
Nurit Ben-Aharon, Israel
want to let you know that I enjoy your Guide very much. My son is
4 years old and I haven't had any parties yet, but on his 5th
birthday I will have to deal with it and I am sure that your
guide will be a great help.

a three month old daughter and I can't wait until she is
old enough to throw her own party, because then I can use

some of the anxiety away...Thank you for such an informative, entertaining
must say that I really enjoyed your book. My daughter

Dana Conley, U.S.A.
you for your wonderful book. I have just opened a kid's "party
house". You have affirmed that I am doing some things right and
offer lots of good advice. Thanks again.
Susan Rainey (aka Sparkles The Clown),
found your book very helpful. My daughter's party is this Saturday
and it's the first party she will have. We are both very excited,
and I'm very nervous. I appreciate all the help your book has been.
is an absolutely FABULOUS site! It was the only site that I found
that didn't charge $ to get a list of games. I particularly enjoyed
your helpful hints on playing the games in chapter 6 of your book.
It is obvious that you have a great sense of humor. Keep up the great
work! Thanks for the great resource.
Amy Shattuck, U.S.A.
funny! I enjoyed every minute of reading it!
Shelly (mom of 2 and scout leader of
made notes of nine things I hadn't considered before reading your
book. I smiled the entire time I was reading and dissolved into
hysterical laughter at five separate junctures. Thank you for your
insights into this terrible ritual.
Denise Lankford U.S.A
Loved your book!! I am just getting ready
for my first full blown birthday party and I was pretty nervous
until I read your book. It was wonderfully written and very
humorous! I got some great ideas and I feel much more confident
now. Thank You! Chrys Richardson USA
have been agonizing (and procrastinating) over my daughter's
upcoming 5th birthday party for weeks. After reading
your guide, I feel like I now know exactly what to do--and
more importantly, what NOT to do--in order to have a
manageable (if not stress-free) experience. Both for
me and the kids! Thank you for making this book available.
Lynn Hargreaves, U.S.A.
you for a lovely time! Read all your great chapters and
think this should be the next book that Meadowbrook Press
does! Good luck and Write on! Or is that Right On?
Maxine M Baird , U.S.A
have really enjoyed reading the chapters. I am currently trying
to organize my son's 5th birthday party. Everything else that I have
found on the internet deals with purchasing products, so your website
was a delightful change. I got lots of ideas which I can pass on to
Ellen Kerr, Canada
upon entering Chapter one of your wonderful site, I zapped it into
my Favourites. Your guide will now be my Party Bible! Thank you
thank you thank you!
Irene Whitten, Canada
have just finished reading your guide and I have to say
that it is the best I have read! I have purchased many
guides on the birthday party business, being a professional
face painter and clown, and have to say that the information
you are providing is spot on! Thanks for a very entertaining
and informative read!
Shannon Fennell, Canada
what an absolutely fantastic Web Site! The content is fantastic:
informative, substantial and written with such humour! Brilliant!
I'm really glad I've got a 4 year old's party to organise next month
Maggie Witty, U.K.
Brilliant!! I am just about to organise my daughters party for her
fourth birthday. I have already broken some of the rules (before I
knew your website existed) but I have picked up some very useful ideas
and I don't feel quite so 'scared' now!!! THANK YOU
Pauline Shearing U.K.
funny and informative.. I have several party books but yours
was superior to them all!!
Sarah Jackson U.K.
isn't the world full of people like you? You are obviously
a warm, intelligent, humorous person who must be about two
hundred years old to have amassed all that wisdom. Keep up
the good work. I for one am now a life long fan.
Rona Barbour (children's writer and
book looks excellent. If I was organising a party I would
definitely use your book.
Mike Bean U.K.
planning a first ever "proper" birthday party for my soon-to-be-four
year old daughter, I came across your book while doing a net search.
I found it very well written, enjoyable to read and useful.
Andrew Lindsay U.K.
a fantastic site, are you sure you're not a child psychologist!!
Your guide has given me loads of ideas and different ways
to approach the kids and a party (with a riot shield!!). I'd definitely recommend your
site. Thanks for your hard work.
Justeen Higgins U.K.
a Primary teacher you'd have thought I'd have this sort
of thing down to a fine art, but organising stuff for
your own kids is different. Your words of wisdom are
great - fun and invaluable.
Kate Drew U.K.
have really enjoyed reading all your party tips and laughed
out loud many times. An informative
yet totally entertaining book. Best of luck to you.
Nic Allen U.K.
fantastic - thanks! I have found your guide to be funny, very informative
with some great ideas and has given me the confidence to attempt my
daughters party at home! Thank you.
Bev Barrett U.K.
Spent loads of money over the years on
useless party books. Been making all of the mistakes you mentioned
for last nine years! No more chaotic parties for the younger
kids though! Thanks a million. Louise Langford UK
an excellent site. I feel I've been there, got the T-shirt, seen
the film and now read the book.
Kevin Otton U.K.
