A make-it-yourself barbecue set! Great idea, except the order goes haywire and Co-Boy and Indian get delivered a million bricks! It's no longer a birthday, it's a tsunami! Horse's house disappears, crushed, under a ton of bricks. It must be built again. Talk about a birthday! Especially when robbers steal the walls as soon as they're built!
