This is the 1970 edition, not the later reissue. A wonderful, early book by this very funny duo. A bear, a pig, a hedgehog, and other animals set out to have a picnic on the lake. Plans go awry when the frogs are noisy and the rast runs aground, but in the end, everyone has a good time! Tiniest bit of rubbing to bottom extrems else FINE in a FINE dust jacket. This copy is from the special Horn Book collection of review copies. Horn Book Magazine has been a children's literature resource since 1924. Throughout the 80-plus years since the inception of the magazine, publishers have sent copies of their new children's books to the Horn Book Magazine for the magazine's staff to review.
