Los Angeles, CA, July 21, 2007 --( Children's parties have become a billion dollar business over the last few
years, with 'bigger is better' casting a shadow over propriety. This trend is leaving parents with difficult modern-day questions on how to throw their kids' parties with both decorum and creativity.

This book addresses those questions that are on parents' minds and also provides them with relevant tips for
throwing kids' parties."
