Porcupine is going on a picnic! First he's joined by Koala. Then Squirrel scampers down a nearby tree. Porcupine offers to share his clover. But Koala eats eucalyptus, and Squirrel loves acorns! What will they all eat? Luckily each animal has brought along the perfect food. Tortoise, Butterfly, Ostrich, and other animals join the fun. Everything is going well until Tiger shows up. Uh-oh! This sweet and slightly scary story is the perfect bite-sized introduction to herbivores, omnivores, and carnivores.

Review quote

"It's a beautiful day, and Porcupine just found 'the perfect spot for a picnic, ' where he can enjoy some clover. When Koala wants to join him, Porcupine offers some of his clover, but Koala politely declines and starts eating some eucalyptus leaves. Gradually, more than a dozen animals arrive to share the picnic spot and enjoy their favorite foods, and Rosenthal showcases a variety of animal diets in the process. Most of the creatures are omnivores or herbivores, but things start to look ominous when Weasel shows up craving mice, and the picnic comes to an abrupt halt when Tiger comes on the scene and gazes hungrily at the picnic attendees. Although most of these animals would never meet in the wild, there's plenty of information to be gleaned from these pages, and the cartoonish, anthropomorphized creatures with big eyes and friendly faces will help the smattering of facts (explained further in an author's note) go down easy. Cheerful artwork and a narrative with plenty of repetition make this a great pick for group story time."--Booklist
