Bing and Chutney are best friends. After breakfast, Chutney
decides it is the perfect day for a picnic. And the perfect place
to go is Moosonee - by streetcar, of course.
Bing agrees that this is a wonderful idea and immediately sets
about creating a feast. Macaroni salad, chocolate chip cookies, and
apples are all loaded into an enormous picnic basket, which is then
topped off perfectly by Bing's grandmother's red checkered
Bing and Chutney see the streetcar off in the distance and wait
patiently. However, when it comes no closer, Chutney decides to
investigate. The driver is fast asleep! They carefully move him to
a seat and Chutney settles down behind the wheel.
Along the route they encounter several of their friends. Cow,
Giraffe, Zebra, Kangaroo, and Rooster all join the outing. Up hills
and down valleys they travel, until just before Moosonee an
accident occurs: the picnic basket falls under the wheels of the
streetcar. But the friends pull together and soon the picnic is
saved. The day is a great success.
