EN - Picnic With Cake is an animated series and cross-media adaptation of the famous picture book 'Picnic With Cake' by Thé Tjong-Khing, published in more than 13 countries. Each of the 13 episodes – all told from the perspective of a different animal – takes the central storyline of a picnic: the discovery of the stolen cakes, the unmasking of the thieves and the happy ending with… cake.

FR - Picnic with Cake est une série animée et une adaptation pluri média du célèbre livre d’illustration « Picnic with Cake » de Thé Tjong-Khing, publié dans plus de 13 pays. Chacun des 13 épisodes, tout comme le bonus de 25 minutes, raconte l’histoire centrale du pique nique, la découverte des gâteaux perdus, la découverte des voleurs, et la fin heureuse avec le cake. Chaque épisode est la même histoire racontée du point de vue d’un autre animal. Dans ce sens, l’histoire du pique nique prend la forme d’un thriller, d’une farce ou d’une comédie romantique, le tout adapté au niveau de son public cible.
