Polly's picnic is ruined when some uninvited guests greedily consume the goodies:in fact, the whole basket:she's prepared for her riverside feast! Some ducks, a fox, two cats, and a horse eat the lot, and when a goat wanders by, he exclaims that the empty basket is a perfect snack for him. When Polly complains that her picnic's all gone, the animals rally around and, with the help of Polly's mother, re-create a wonderful spread, making Polly very happy for not only the food, but the company too. With lush pastel illustrations perfect for summer, award-winning artist Sophy Williams creates a delicious environment for picnic time or for anytime!

Fortunately, Williams's (Starry Tales) idyllic, mostly full-bleed illustrations wring gentle humor from the story's premise (the horse clutching a spoon in his teeth as he mixes up a bowl of something in the kitchen is a particular delight).
