Description of this Book

A boy is having a birthday party but everyone he knows is apparently too busy to come. They all have excuses as to why they won't be there and it looks as though he will be spending his birthday alone! But it's all right because Georgie, his best friend, will be there - and together, they will have more fun at his party than with anyone else. As it turns out, one good friend is all you really need.
