It's a lovely day for a picnic so Hen picks some berries, Goose picks some apples and Duck picks some pears then the three friends set off to look for the perfect spot to enjoy their feast. But young readers will quickly discover that the three friends aren't the only ones who are hungry. A mouse, a squirrel and a rabbit all help themselves to the food and by the time the friends sit down to eat, the basket is empty. As the picnic basket gets lighter and lighter, readers will be laughing harder and harder.
