Description
Community cooperation turns a traffic jam into an opportunity for fun in this inventive counting book starring a pair of clever canine siblings.

In this highly original counting tale, the Pickwicks--Pip and Peach, Mom and Daddy--leave the hot hazy city for a picnic by the shore. Along the way, they are passed by 2 scooters, 3 jeeps, and more--until they hit a sudden roadblock of 10 cruisers. Traffic stops and drivers grow grumpy, but Pip and Peach know exactly how to turn an unexpected glitch into a festive occasion for everyone Engaging rhythm and detail-filled art reward repeated readings of Carol Brendler and Renee Kurilla's countable account of a very special picnic.
