Overview

Bing and Chutney are best friends. After breakfast, Chutney decides it is the perfect day for a picnic. And the perfect place to go is Moosonee - by streetcar, of course.

Bing agrees that this is a wonderful idea and immediately sets about creating a feast. Macaroni salad, chocolate chip cookies, and apples are all loaded into an enormous picnic basket, which is then topped off perfectly by Bing's grandmother's red checkered blanket.

Bing and Chutney see the streetcar off in the distance and wait patiently. However, when it comes no closer, Chutney decides to investigate. The driver is fast asleep! They carefully move him to a seat and Chutney settles down behind the wheel.

Along the route they encounter several of their friends. Cow, Giraffe, Zebra, Kangaroo, and Rooster all join the outing. Up hills and down valleys they travel, until just before Moosonee an accident occurs: the picnic basket falls under the wheels of the streetcar. But the friends pull together and soon the picnic is saved. The day is a great success.

Praise for Bing and Chutney

"The point is not the pace, but the results. Friends support friends in this blithe fantasy with its strong message."
(Kirkus Reviews, October, 1999)

"Theirs is an enviably happy life, its sweet domesticity captured by von Königslöw's endearing watercolors."
(Globe and Mail, October, 1999)

"What comes through in the energetic, quirky illustrations is how much fun life can be."
(City Parent, September, 2000)

Editorial Reviews

Canadian Materials
While told in simple language, the book is a satisfying tale for very young readers. Recommended.
— Lisa Sykes
Canadian Materials - Lisa Sykes
Bing and Chutney Off to Moosonee, part of the Bing and Chutney series for preschoolers, is a sweet tale of friendship. The two main characters have their own distinct personalities and talents (and even their own individual fonts for their names) and are energetic and confident. The plot moves along quickly as the story is told in a straightforward manner with each page containing another quick twist in the tale. Andrea von Konigslow's watercolour paintings are lively and humourous and include some quirky touches such as Chutney's wearing heart-shaped sunglasses. The story has a positive mood throughout, and the ending conveys the important message that problems are easily solved. While told in simple language, the book is a satisfying tale for very young readers. Recommended.
Children's Literature
The continuing oddball adventures of two housemates—one a pig who likes to cook, and one an elephant who likes to dance—will make for some silly entertainment. Probably best suited for early readers to tackle on their own, adults may find this story lacking in cleverness for a read-aloud. Still, the watercolor illustrations are very cute and colorful, and a cookie recipe on the inside cover is a fun activity for kids and adults to enjoy together. 2001, Annick Press, $18.95 and $5.95. Ages 2 to 4. Reviewer:Jane Harrington
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Bing, a pig, and Chutney, an elephant, are best friends. Chutney loves to dance in her tutu, while her pal likes to cook and bake. One day they take off for a picnic far to the north. The elephant takes over the controls of the streetcar when they discover its driver fast asleep, and on the way they pick up other friends-Cow, Giraffe, Zebra, Kangaroo, and Rooster. When the picnic basket is accidentally tossed out the window and squashed under the wheels, they pull it out and eat on the spot, as snow begins to fall. Despite the fact that they never make it to Moosonee, it turns out to be a very good day after all. The story reads as if it could have been written by a child. Derivative of other picture books about two best friends, it is neither clever nor original. Whimsical watercolors are on a par with the story.-Sally R.
