About this Item

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. This book has the "Horn Book" stamp on the free front endpaper. Review slip laid in. Bookseller Inventory # 82060166
