Picnic - Emily Arnold McCully

Love the illustrations, thought the storyline was weak. Basically these mice are going out for a picnic, baby mouse falls off the truck on the way and nobody notices. The mice family has a grand time till they notice that baby mouse is gone, meanwhile baby mouse is pigging out on the berries around it. They find each other and all is good. That is the extent of the book, very cute illustrations but very poor storyline.
