If it is just a few days until your birthday, and your mother says you can invite anyone you like to come over to play, be careful! If you don't watch out, you might soon be having the craziest party ever, with people and food from around the world. Before you know it, night could come and go and a new day could begin, and the dancing might still be going strong. At least, that is what happens in this humorous and irresistibly joyful cautionary tale! In a celebration of neighbors and diversity, an open-ended party invitation results in a raucous gathering of children, pets and parents (plus salsa dancers and a reggae band!), all feasting on food from all over the world. Couscous, crepes, salad, ackee--there isn't enough room on the table for all the food. And it's noisy too, because people don't stop talking while they eat and dance. The party might have gotten out of hand a bit, but nobody minds--after all, it is the craziest, wildest, funnest party ever! Everyone loves a party, and with its vivid illustrations and irresistibly playful text, this picture book delivers the rowdiest, happiest birthday party ever

Meanwhile Bento falls in love with Rosa, a beautiful young slave who is also searching for her family.
