A wordless look-and-find adventure picture book full of intricate detail and comical storytelling, in which a group of animals chase their stolen picnic—and find some hungry friends to share the cake.
Time for cake! But the eagle swipes up the blanket and flies away. The animals chase after to find all their stolen picnic things.
Thé Tjong-Khing’s visual storytelling slows us down and invites us to look more closely. Can you remember everything on the blanket? Hat, ball, doll, feather, cake? Who is hiding in the bush? What has the dog seen on the cliff? How will pig get back her sun umbrella? Why is the rabbit crying? And how can there be cake for everyone when the very hungry rat family has eaten it already?
Collect all the missing objects, find out who they belong to and come back home for more cake in this look-and-find memory game that culminates in the delightful reward of sharing.
Thé Tjong-Khing was born in Indonesia and moved to the Netherlands as a young man;where he drew comics in the studio of a celebrated Dutch cartoonist. Now a world-leading illustrator for children, he has received many prizes including the Max Velthuijs Prize for his life's work in 2010 and nomination for the Hans Christian Andersen Award.
