About the book
A warm, funny picture book about a group of animals and their (not so) perfect day in the garden, from beloved author and illustrator Lane Smith.
Whether basking in the warmth of the sun, nibbling on a fresh yellow corn-on-the-cob, or cooling off in a clear pool of water, it is a truly beautiful afternoon for all . . . what could possibly go wrong?
In this follow up to the beautiful Kate Greenaway Medal-winning There Is a Tribe of Kids, Lane Smith's bright and fresh artwork combines with his sharp wit and enormously appealing characters to create a story full of playful chaos. Inspired by Lane Smith's real life encounter with a marauding bear, A Perfect Day is a perfect picture book for story time.
