This is an easy book to read and very funny. Jeffery told his Dad that he wanted Saturn for his birthday. When he told him, his Dad was drinking milk and it squirted out of his Dad’s nose. That was the funniest part of the story! The silliest part of the story is when Jeffery was dreaming that he gave Saturn a bath in the bathtub! I thought this was a really neat thing to want for your birthday. If I could have Saturn for my birthday, I would want it too! I learned a bunch of facts about Saturn that I didn’t know before from this book, “Saturn for My Birthday” by John McGranaghan. I really liked the artwork; it had a lot of details and was very colorful. I liked all the animals and the Cockatoo with his funky “hair style.”
