This “I Like to Read book” is designed for beginning readers. The words are in a large type face and easy for young readers. Rose the pig has a party and asks her brother, Pete, to deliver invitations to her friends. With the prospect of a piece of cake as his reward, Pete agrees and delivers two of the invitations, but is distracted and forgets to deliver the third one. At the party Rose and her friends notice Gert is missing and they go to her house to find out where she is. Pete looks in his pocket and there is Gert’s invitation. Gert’s feelings are hurt and only Pete’s apology and some birthday cake can make things right.
