    A pie that plops, a mood that drops, and a friendship that never stops are the main ingredients of John's latest zany adventure. In this follow-up to 2021's Something's Wrong, friends Hare and Bear decide to have a picnic. Hare makes a pie and then takes a walk in the woods as it cools on the windowsill. A heavy rain ensues, and the pie becomes a sodden mess. Hare tries to rescue the picnic with what he can find in the pantry: a can of baked beans, a sprouting potato, a shoelace, a pencil, some yarn, a salt shaker. Ebullient, garrulous Bear shows up, but the thoroughly miserable Hare takes off, refusing to talk. Bear persists, finally getting Hare to open up and, in a hilarious four-page sequence juxtaposing Bear's and Hare's reactions, reveal his sad picnic items. The illustrations, done with woodcut and linocut prints plus colored pencils, create a wonderfully textured, vivid world. A great resolution involves a picnic, many forest animals, and a resounding message about the power of always being there for your friends. Preschool-Grade 1. Copyright 2023 Booklist Reviews.
