Debbie's Birthday Party by Gilbert Delahaye & Marcel Marlier
This is one of three 'Debbie' books I have and loved when I was a child. And I thought to review it for you all out there. Debbie's birthday is coming up and so, her family thought to make it a special one. There's the invites to be sent out, her dress to make in her favourite colour, the cake to bake and games to organise. This book is one of my favourites from the 'Debbie' collection and I have fond memories of reading it and dreaming about my perfect birthday party when I was a child.
I'm so glad I've got these books as far as I know, they are out of print due to the illustrater - Gilbert Delahaye - passing away in 1997. However, I'm still researching Marcel Marlier. If you would like to know more, I'm afraid you'll have to Google both men as they don't have an official website. This is unfortunate as I really did love these very beautifully written and illustrated books and they took me away into another world whenever I read them.
