    "A funny family story packed with mayhem and good spirits."

    Kirkus

    "Phillips introduces the family via individual, smiling portraits and utilizes colorful paper cut-out illustrations and bold-faced exclamations to capture the characters’ dynamic chemistry and the kooky chaos that ensues."

    —Booklist

    "The Simple family examines the word "picnic" in a very basic way that will have young ones chuckling."

    —School Library Journal

    "The result is merry mayhem, as a menagerie of animals, domesticated and not-so, try to get in on the feast."

    —The New York Times
