From the Publisher:
One warm summer night, a frog jumps into Lucy's room with a magic party hat and an invitation for her to a birthday party. Lucy puts on the hat and--when a moonbeam touches the hat out in the garden--becomes as small as a leaf! Full color.Receiving an invitation to a birthday party, Lucy puts on a magic party hat, shrinks down to the size of a leaf, and sets out to join a host of woodland creatures at a special nighttime celebration. By the author of The Maggie B.
Annotation:
A young girl named Lucy is summoned from her bed by a frog who invites her to a secret summertime party. Transformed to miniature size, young Lucy attends the party in the company of a baby bird, a mouse, an inch worm, and a small Japanese doll lost long ago by Lucy's own grandmother. Watercolor and pastel illustrations accompany the text.

Praise

Washington Post Book World
"...a picture book for all seasons...I can think of no more sumptuous effort in the history of American picture books...a lush, oversized volume, with generous, cream-colored pages and the heady fragrance of old printer's ink. It looks and smells like a classic." - Michael Patrick Hearn 05/04/1997

Kirkus Reviews
"An opulent book that sports sumptuous watercolors, a lively tempo, and clever energy....Haas touches the story with rhyme here and there, infuses it with hope and old-fashioned enchantment, and loads the artwork with details that continue to reveal themselves upon additional readings." 04/01/1997

New York Times Book Review
"This is an old-fashioned, lavish and child-friendly storybook. The format is large, the paper is creamy, and Ms. Haas's gorgeous and fully developed watercolor paintings are delicate and filled with curious details that a child can ponder during the day as well as at bedtime." - Barbara McClintock 06/01/1997
