From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Fanciful landscapes and animals enliven this homily reminding readers that, although life has its vicissitudes, "the world is a garden so full of delights . . . that every day, is a ripping day for a picnic." A regal, bespectacled, long-haired creature with skinny legs summons his friends for a picnic. Together they gather fruits from heavily laden trees and search "through thick and thin" before tumbling into a gameboard-like world to share their feast. As they meet and cope with their surrealistic encounters, the quartet conveys a variety of emotions with their black-dot eyes and strange appendages. The full- and double-page illustrations are a riot of color tidily framed with white borders appropriately containing the ofttimes puzzling scenes. A slight, but pleasant, diversion. --Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NB

From Publishers Weekly:

"It's a ripping day for a picnic," this sunny yellow book proclaims from its start. Four animal friends want to have a picnic but they don't know where to hold it. Together they hunt for a good spot, through dark, frightful caves and maze-shaped gardens. During their quest, they explore exotic lands and narrowly escape being eaten by huge tongue-wagging plants. Finally, they reach a toy-filled land, perfect for holding a picnic. Du Quette's terse, unrhymed style lends to the story the tone of a questioning child, imaginative and innocent. This debut picture book blooms with brightly colored illustrations. A hot summer day is recreated with a light blue cloudless sky and plush green trees abounding with peaches and plums. Readers will bask in the warmth and excitement of this afternoon picnic outing. Ages 3-8.
