A story about a birthday gone terrifically awry. Harold Snipperpot is turning seven and it’s his first real birthday party ever. His parents hire cool Mr. Ponzio to plan an extraordinary afternoon that Harold will never forget. The special day is here, the doorbell rings and before Harold and his family know it, a raucous jumble of wild animals is stomping through their house, wreaking havoc in wild, unimaginable ways. Stunned by the fiasco unfolding before him and unable to give it too much thought, Harold goes along for the ride. He discovers that strangely enough, even extraordinarily bad things have their silver lining — proof that sometimes the worst disaster in the world can be the best disaster ever.
