Beaver's friends are determined to make his birthday extra special this year! Tortoise, Bird, Rabbit and Squirrel insist on baking his birthday cake, but Beaver isn't so sure. He is the ultimate perfectionist and would rather do it himself, following the recipe exactly. Will Beaver's nitpicky ways ruin his birthday and his friendships? The Perfect Birthday Recipe is the fourth and final story in Katy Hudson's best-selling collection of seasonal picture books, including Too Many Carrots, A Loud Winter's Nap, and The Golden Acorn.
