THE SIMPLES LOVE A PICNIC
The Simples want to go out and have a simple little picnic, but things become horribly complicated: The dog chases after a squirrel, the cat reveals its hiding spot in Lulu’s backpack, there are too many ants and birds, and one food item send the whole park into a tizzy! What will the Simples do?
From the artist and author J. C. Phillipps comes this hilarious little picture book with a big heart to remind us that picnics are just a little about food and a lot about family.
I bet your bottom dollar that if read correctly The Simples Love a Picnic by J.C. Phillipps could be one of those books a classroom of first graders fight to the death to check out from the library. The lie is in its very name: “Simple”. As a quick perusal shows, what Phillipps is able to accomplish here is anything but simplistic. After all, writing funny books is no easy task, yet The Simples Love a Picnic blows that notion right out of the water. Highly hilarious stuff.
