The Pickwicks' Picnic

A Counting Adventure

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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 Renée Kurilla’s countable account of a very special picnic.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 24, 2017 – Dog lovers and vehicle-obsessed readers will all get a kick out of this counting book, which follows the Pickwicks, a family of fluffy white dogs, as they attempt to visit the shore. But they aren't the only ones on the road ("4 family vans chug by the Pickwick pickup, heading for the box-girder bridge; 5 flashy bikes come around the Pickwick pickup, heading for the box-girder bridge"), and when everyone finally gets to that all-important bridge, it's closed for repairs, leading to "an unplanned Pickwick picnic by the box-girder bridge!" Through playful repetition and some very expressive vocabulary, Brendler turns traffic-clogged roads and construction delays into an adventure, and Kurilla's airy cartoons magnify the sense of fun. Party at the box-girder bridge! Ages 4 7. Author's agent: Ammi-Joan Paquette, Erin Murphy Literary. Illustrator's agent: Jennifer Rof , Andrea Brown Literary.
