An imaginative story with the rhythm of repetitive text that tells the adventures of a small boy who goes for a walk in the forest and meets his animal friends for a grand picnic. The bears and the monkeys have brought peanuts and jam; miraculously ice-cream and cake turn up. And after the feast, they play games. While the little boy has his eyes closed, his friends disappear. Then his daddy finds him and as they start for home, he calls out that he'll come another day.
