" the count of three, we can race for the food we like best..."

When two friends decide to go on a picnic, they never expected it to turn into a party. But gradually, ten more eager picnickers show up, each with an irresistible snack to add to the collection. And of course, as each new friend joins the crowd, calculations are in order: How much of each treat will each one get now? Just when everything is working out neatly, a thirteenth hungry picknicker shows up -- with nothing to offer -- and all the calculations are turned topsy-turvy. Should they let him join in? And, if they do, how will they divide up the picnic?

An uproarious introduction to simple division concepts, illustrated with delectable cut-paper artwork by Golden Kite Award winner Amy Walrod.
