A Perfect Wonderful Day With Friends

Philip Waechter, translated by Melody Shaw

(Gecko Press)– hardback

Although ‘an exciting book or some exercise often helps‘ Raccoon when he’s bored, it seems only an apple cake will help on this occasion. Unfortunately, Raccoon  is ‘out of eggs‘. That means that he will have to venture to Fox’s home. However, Fox is repairing her roof and in need of a ladder. Thereafter, the pair journey to Badger’s. However, he’s up to his neck in crossword clues. Can Bear help? Will they find her at her house, or maybe at the river? Crow leads the way!
It seems, thereafter, that the gathering becomes A Perfect Wonderful Day With Friends for all. When Fox dives into the river, it inspires the others to join her. After this, it’s time to ‘borrow Badger’s ladder‘ and get onto some chores before settling down for the evening.
Philip Waechter creates a most wonderful picture of community, leisure and warmth through this picture book that demands to be lingered over. It is reminiscent of Lisette’s Green Sock and Bruno in its imagination, animal characters and then its translated origins. Bookwagon loves and recommends this truly beautiful book. A Perfect Wonderful Day With Friends is recommended to all picture book aficionados. This is a book to keep, love, gift and treasure.
