Synopsis

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 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.

Smith, with his signature humor, masterfully fills the spreads with Bear’s immense scale and endearing antics, capturing each comedic beat with text repetition and expressive illustrations

Kirkus

Smith’s artwork is a riot of color and texture—forceful brushstrokes evoke animal fur, and gestural flowers create blasts of color in the landscape
