Sometimes itís your birthday. And sometimes it isnít. But even if itís not your birthday, itís still important to celebrate everyday things like Tuesdays, coconuts, and orange, and also yellow and lions. And monkeys. And purple. Friends Audrey and Lion find pleasure and solace in marking small moments together, with the help of balloons and confetti and drums and games and hats. For anyone who has ever wished for a birthday party every day of the year, this is a story about finding your own reasons to have cakeóand to enjoy spending time with good friends.
