The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best-loved illustrator Quentin Blake brings to life this lyrical, watery story. Pig, squirrel, hedgehog and hen are excited to join bear for his water picnic. They all love the quiet of the lake until they meet the noisy frogs! Searching for greater peace, bear and his friends float on but, it turns out that they need the frogs after all! If you enjoy Quentin Blakes’ hallmark illustrations then do check out his various other titles that have recently been reissued.
The Bear's Water Picnic by John Yeoman
The bear has organized a picnic on the river for his friends. It's the perfect day and everything is going swimmingly until they are disturbed by a loud croaking noise from among the lily pads. It's the frogs! They want to join in, but the friends don't fancy putting up with the noise, so they move on to a quieter part of the lake. Unfortunately they soon find themselves stuck on a sandbank, and only the frogs can help them!
