Zeke is not thrilled with his mom's idea of a birthday party at home. He wants to take everyone to the amusement park but that's too expensive.

Then two of his classmates plan parties for the same weekend! Instead of having his own boring party he decides to attend the other ones. Things don't go quite as planned and Zeke's mom gets a surprise party of her own. A funny story that will entertain kids 1st-3rd grades.
