Keeping Up with boarding house chores means there's no time to plan a birthday party for Kit's tenth birthday. Besides, there's no money either, since Dad still doesn't have a job because of the Depression. Kit knows she shouldn't even be thinking about a party, but it's hard not to hope. Then, when Aunt Millie shows up unexpectedly at the Kittredges' front door, Kit finds new reasons to hope. And Aunt Millie is so full of good ideas and surprises that Kit loves having her there-until, that is, one of Aunt Millie's ideas doesn't sound so good to Kit.Tripp, Valerie is the author of 'Happy Birthday Kit A Springtime Story, 1934' with ISBN 9781584850229 and ISBN 1584850221.
