Written for young and impressionable hearts, the faith-based characters will lead your little ones on a path of thoughtfulness and thankfulness.


Each clever character brings a snack to the surprise birthday picnic, winding their way through the alphabet on their journey.


From the morning of Spotty Leopard's birthday to the picnic party at the end, children will enjoy the journey with their new found friends!

Birthdays, Picnics, Surprises!

Spotty Leopard's Birthday Party Picnic Surprise by Michael Kamplain is a charming children's book written for his granddaughter Perrie that follows the tale of Spotty Leopard and her friends. Michael writes about his love for his granddaughter and how she inspired the story. As an educator, Michael creatively uses different characters, each bringing an item to the picnic to go through the alphabet. This provides an exercise that is fun but also helps children learn.

My 10 year old reads this book to our 4 year old--so precious! Thank you for a fun, educational, and value-based book!

My kids love Spotty Leopard, and I love that they're enjoying reading! (The Blue Grass Frog Band illustration is their favorite!)
