Picnic aimed to entertain children from 6 years old on a car journey.
Menu consists of foods that relate to driving and cars e.g, Rocky Road and
'Brake' bar. Colours and typeface derive from the UK Transport system,
and the box is based around a car boot. Elements like Road Sign bingo
cards (to be played whilst on the road) and a hidden spare tyre have
been added to make the journey less mundane and boring.
Narrative taken from Ellen MacArthurs solo circumnavigation of the globe in 2004, in which she aimed to beat the previous record holder Francis Joyon. After 72 days at sea, she beat Joyons record by just over 24 hours... he went to to reclaim his title in 2008, beating MacArthur by two weeks.
The book is bound on both sides, so it is unreadable unless each page is ripped off and the book destroyed. The reader has to work to get to the end of the story and when they have finished they have nothing left to show, much like Ellens' record after she was beaten.
