What book is the illustrator referencing in the picture of the three confused bears (with a checkerboard, banjo and lantern)? I get the Huck Finn and the Moby Dick references, but I don't get that one! Thanks.

Billy I think it could be a reference to "Go, Dog. Go!" Towards the middle of that book there are three dogs in a boat at night. One has a banjo, I remember there being a lantern, and I'm guessing if I had a copy handy I might see a checkerboard in there as well.
