Reading Group Theme - Birthdays

The children's reading group that I oversee and co-host at the library is in its second year now. After a few meetings the idea of setting just one book wasn't very popular so we have moved to a themed approach. The meetings are now every other Saturday so that's a lot of themes in a year! One suggestion we had was for a Birthday theme and I had to scratch my head a bit for that one. My twitter friends came up with some great suggestions but they weren't available in the library but I persevered with google and amazon and I now have a short list of birthday-themed books that can be readily-(ish) found in the UK:
Sweet 16 by Kate Brian (Teenage)

A Bean Birthday by Betsy Byars

Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls: Glitter Girls
by Meg Cabot

Dizzy by Cathy Cassidy

The Sleepover Club (10) - Happy Birthday, Sleepover Club
by Fiona Cummings (also included in Sleepover Club Omnibus: No. 4)

The Death Defying Pepper Roux by Geraldine McCaughrean

Party Poppers (Glitter Girls: 5
) by Caroline Plaisted

Polly's Absolutely Worst Birthday Ever by Frances Thomas (being reprinted in May 2012)

Caz's Birthday Blues (Party Girls)
by Jennie Walters

Some of the dated covers provoked a few giggles! Further suggestions welcomed!
