Arthur's birthday and Muffy's birthday are the same day. Arthur comes up with an idea. He gives a note to Muffy to pick up her present at his house. Everyone came to Arthur's house with presents. Everyone hides from Muffy. When Muffy came to Arthur's house, everyone said, "Surprise, Muffy!" Then they had their birthday parties.

My favorite part of the story is when Arthur opens his birthday card, because the envelope had three dollar bills in it. My favorite character is Arthur, because he is nice to his sister and he is funny. I can relate this story to my real life because I go to school and I have a lot of friends.

This story has a lot of pictures. They help to tell the story because the characters move as you read the book. I think people should read this book because it tells you about solving problems, and it is a good book to read.
