School Library Journal - 07/01/2018 PreS-K—In this follow-up to Tea with Oliver, Oliver the cat and Philbert the mouse have become best friends and want to go on a picnic. They prepare the necessary supplies and after a few setbacks, arrive at a park by a small pond. Oliver unpacks while Philbert runs off to sail his little boat. Engrossed in their activities, two friends fail to notice the growing storm. When the skies open up, Oliver rescues the nearly drowned Philbert but the picnic seems beyond salvaging…until Oliver has an idea. Buoyed by their friendship, the pair return home where they continue their picnic indoors. Speech balloons convey the conversations. Song's softly colored ink-and-watercolor illustrations create a sedate mood for this gentle story. VERDICT An appealing addition for fans of the previous installment or picnic lovers everywhere, suitable for storytime or one-on-one sharing.—Yelena Voysey, formerly at Pickering Educational Library, Boston University - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
