An invitation to picnic with the King of France sends a young boy, his papa, two big dogs, and three wild aunts dancing their way across the French countryside. When the time comes to dine with the royals, Papa’s energetic dance moves catch up with him and his worn pants burst at the seams. The stage is set for a wild party that finds even the stuffiest nobles getting down in their unmentionables. Sarah Wilson’s uproarious text makes for a boisterous read-aloud, but it’s Catherine Stock’s hilarious portrayals of cavorting courtiers and gallant guests that will have kids begging for more of this raucous summertime romp.
Sarah Wilson is the author of many beloved books for children. She lives in Danville, California.
Review, Tidewater Parent, June 1, 2010:“This lesson in kindness and grace changes an embarassing situation into an adventure.”
