With clever comic timing this story builds to a surprise ending rather like The Gruffalo. Mortimer is planning a picnic with his best friend Oggy. It’s all ready when a note arrives – poor Oggy has a cold and can’t come after all. Kind-hearted Mortimer decides he’ll look after his friend and take the picnic to him. But a little rabbit hurrying through the woods with a basket of cake and sausages soon attracts the attention of some fierce, hungry creatures and before long Mortimer has a crocodile, a wolf and a troll snapping at his heels, only to be snatched up by something bigger and fiercer still. It’s a funny, very satisfying story with an excellent twist. Nick Ward’s warm, humourous illustrations are full of extra little details that make this even more fun. ~ Andrea Reece
