A boy joins the bears for a magical forest feast in the board book edition of The Teddy Bears' Picnic by Jimmy Kennedy, illus. by Michael Hague. (May) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The ``mummies and daddies'' who take home the teddy bears at the end of the picnic day are, of course, the boys and girls who own them. They've been hidding in the forest, waiting for the little stuffed bears to wear themselves out. Anyone familiar with the song on which this book is based undoubtedly has pictures of the frolic in mind; Theobalds's charming illustrations complement these ideas, with antique and classic bears in a lush forest setting, playing games and partaking of food and drink carted there in baskets and sacks. A feast of watercolors. Ages 3-7. (August)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- No surprises here. The ursine stars of this popular nonsense ditty provide plenty of opportunity for Hague to draw his favorite subjects. In a fairly literal interpretation of the lyrics, he shows lots of teddy bears, in various shapes, sizes, and degrees of cuteness, heading into an autumnal wood to cavort well beyond the watchful eyes of their human owners. Children will not fail to miss the one curious child who follows his own teddy to the picnic site, since he is the one creature whose pale visage and upright posture are distinctly human despite his fuzzy bear costume. ?- Combining realism with romanticism, Hague remains true to his highly recognizable style, creating an appealing fantasy world full of curious details such as lithesome fairies and other fey creatures rendered in pen-and-ink line drawings washed in warm earth tones and livened by touches of soft reds and blues. The arhythmic, and at times, nonrhyming verse, captioned in unobtrusive black-bordered boxes and set against the full double-page illustrations, might read awkwardly to those unfamiliar with the tune. Unfortunately, no musical notation is provided. --Dorothy Houlihan, formerly at White Plains Pub . Lib . , NY
From the Publisher
"Hague has turned his considerable talents to the whimsical song written by Kennedy more than 40 years ago. The result, with its lavish, full-spread illustrations and large trim size, is almost a coffee-table book for children." —Publishers Weekly
