About the Author Philip Waechter is one of Germany’s leading children’s author/illustrators. He lives in Frankfurt, where he works as a graphic designer as part of the community studio LABOR. Product Description A big-hearted picture book about outdoor adventures on the perfect sunny, summer day.This feel-good and joyful book captures the warmth and fun of a spontaneous summer day with friends, where one lovely activity leads to another until they all go back home to bake a cake (two cakes!) to finish. Raccoon decides to bake an apple cake. But he has no eggs, so visits his friend Fox, who needs a ladder to mend the roof. Badger will have one, but he needs help too, so they set off to find Bear. They stroll through meadows, meet up with Crow, nibble blackberries and find Bear fishing at the river. Soon the five friends are having the best day out―the sun shining on their fur, fishing, swimming, picnic and finally home to bake the cake―two cakes, because bears have big appetites. A Perfect Wonderful Day with Friends is a picture book to instantly capture the heart. Laconic narration, funny dialogue and exquisite illustrations tell the story of a carefree childhood day and evoke nostalgia of summer’s spent playing outside, fishing, climbing trees and swimming. The repetition of language and lyrical text make a fun and satisfying read aloud - allowing children to join in. Perfect to celebrate the start of the summer school holidays. Wonderful to read aloud together in the sunshine. Philip Waechter was born in Germany. He lives as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator in Frankfurt am Main known for his beautifully classic illustration style. In 1999 Philip and Moni Port co-founded the community studio LABOR. Translated from the German edition by Melody Shaw. Praise for A Perfect Wonderful Day with Friends “The secret to happiness lies, this jovial book hints, in welcoming every new event and participating wholeheartedly.” Publishers Weekly "Friendly characters, a satisfying story, and a happy ending for all. . . A rewarding choice for reading aloud." Booklist Review "Bored one morning, Raccoon decides to make an apple cake. Having no eggs, he goes to borrow some from Fox. She's at home, repairing her roof. Needing a ladder to complete the job, they go to ask Badger, who's struggling with a crossword-puzzle clue. Perhaps Bear can solve it. As they leave to look for her, Crow flies over to say that she's fishing at the riverbank. By sunset, Raccoon has enjoyed a walk with Fox, a picnic with Fox and Badger, and a climbing expedition with Fox, Badger, and Crow, followed by a swim and a roof repair with all his friends, who end their 'perfect, wonderful day' eating apple cake at Raccoon's house. Created by the writer/illustrator of Jacob's Fantastic Flight (2020) and first published in Germany, this appealing picture book features friendly characters, a satisfying story, and a happy ending for all. The precise, beautifully detailed line drawings create a world that captures the spirit of the text while adding details that will intrigue young children. A rewarding choice for reading aloud."―Booklist"Raccoon sits in his house, socks drying on a line over the stove, thinking. He could make an apple cake to end his boredom, but Raccoon is out of eggs. So he pops over to visit neighbor Fox, who has egg-laying chickens―and who reveals that she needs to climb higher to repair her roof. The two call on their neighbor Badger, who has a ladder, and the sequence continues, each visit a link in a chain that joins neighbor to neighbor and favor to favor. Soon, Raccoon and all his friends are swimming in a pond, their chores forgotten. Taking all the time they need, the animals have fun first, then finish all the tasks―together―when they arrive home. In spreads by Waechter (Jacob's Fantastic Flight), clear, carefully worked drawings capture the merry detritus of daily life inside and out of doors, tree leaves worked i
