Not Another Birthday in the Crew Lounge!?

Alison Morris - December 2, 2007

The comments field of this blog doesn’t allow images, otherwise those pasted below would have appeared in the comments on my post about  the best book I got at NCTE, shared by an anonymous ShelfTalker reader. She says she is "another grateful reader of today’s expansive and exciting offerings in children’s books [who] also keeps this hilarious gem on her shelf as a reminder of how far we’ve come."

In case you can’t read the text in the image below, I’ll reprint it here for you:

     "Our Denver flight is fogged in, Barbie," said Ken. "I’m afraid we’ll be late taking off."
     "Oh, no!" said Barbie. "I’ll never get to my birthday party on time. I may be spending my birthday right here in this crew lounge." Barbie looked around the lounge and sighed sadly.

    From the cover, it looks like Barbie has to bring her own prezzies to her party, too. I’ll guess she’s giving herself a Francie doll and a Skipper doll (with the growing you-know-whatsits). I hope there’s a happy birthday ending.
