The Greatest Picnic in the World
by Anna Grossnickle Hines

Buddy and his mother make elaborate preparations for a picnic at the beach and deal with various problems along the way, only to be driven back indoors by a rainstorm. Watercolors in sunny tones brighten the pages. As ever, Hines is wholly tuned in to the everyday hopes and mishaps of young children's lives.  ALA Booklist 5/91
