There’s always room for one more! Three best animal friends include a fourth for a picnic in this gentle, pastoral story.

Panda Foo, Jigger, and Boodle have planned a picnic. But when Foo announces that he has invited his new friend, Curly, Jigger and Boodle have lots of questions. Is she big? Small? What does she like? Why is she called Curly? Sometimes new ideas take a little time to get used to — and sometimes new friends make picnics even better! From Mary Murphy comes a simple, comforting tale about the quiet pleasures new experiences can bring.
