Editorial Reviews

A funny family story packed with mayhem and good spirits."- Kirkus "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." -Booklist "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 "
