What’s more fun than a picnic? Readers join Mum, her young daughter, the baby, and the ever-present family dog as they prepare a meal, pack up the pram, and head to the park for a lovely picnic. But who are these uninvited guests . . . ? And where did the dog get to? As in the other titles in this classic series, Garland’s brief text serves as a springboard for her celebrated illustrations. Richly hued and wonderfully detailed, they depict a lovably messy, ordinary family with humor and sympathy.
