When Picnic was first published in 1984, readers fell in love with Emily Arnold McCully's lush watercolors and charming story about a little mouse who is reunited with her family. Now the Caldecott artist has added words and painted bigger illustrations in her signature whimsical style to accommodate a larger-sized read-aloud book. But what has not changed is a timeless story about the hurt of being lost, and the joy of being found again.

Emily Arnold McCullyhas illustrated more than a hundred books for children, including her own First Snow and Arnold Adoff's Black Is Brown Is Tan. She won the Caldecott Medal for her book Mirette On the High Wire.

Editorial Reviews

“Defined by McCully’s precise, energetic line drawings and brightened with washes in warm, rich colors, the ink-and-watercolor artwork will appeal to children and adults alike. With a short text and sun-dappled illustrations, this book captures the feeling og the best summer days; so joyful, so spendid that even the sad tale of a little lost mouse is sure th end happily.” (ALA Booklist)
