KIRKUS REVIEW

A bear family, as forgetful as the Stupids are plain silly, prepares to go on a picnic. They forget the food, forget where they live, forget where they left the car, and so on; but eventually they are all rounded up by Grandpa Forgetful, who doesn't seem to share the family foible, and they end up having"" a wonderful time--which they never forgot."" Such bumbling may have a predictable appeal, but Weinberg's joke doesn't go far on its own--and without the absurdity of James Marshall's weightless dolts, Winter's more detailed and literal illustrations hold it down.
