A simple picnic is full of complications for the Simple family in this hilarious picture book about togetherness.
The Simple family's plans for a picnic in the park prove disastrously complex. From the artist and author J. C. Phillipps comes this hilarious little picture book with a big heart to remind us that picnics are just a little about food and a lot about family.
"A funny family story packed with mayhem and good spirits."
"Phillips introduces the family via individual, smiling portraits and utilizes colorful paper cut-out illustrations and bold-faced exclamations to capture the characters’ dynamic chemistry and the kooky chaos that ensues."
"The Simple family examines the word "picnic" in a very basic way that will have young ones chuckling."
—School Library Journal
"The result is merry mayhem, as a menagerie of animals, domesticated and not-so, try to get in on the feast."
—The New York Times
