“In a Pickle” is a warmly told tale about a precocious little boy and his schoolyard predicament. It is delightful in its simplicity and enchanting in the way it mischievously unfolds.
The title quandary involves a classic bullies-picking-on-an-easy-target story but elevates it with a clever solution and ends it with an elegant and touching little bon mot.
The bright and warm watercolor illustrations are a visual delight on par with the vintage children’s books we all know and love. In a Pickle is both a classic and modern tale for any reader looking to be enchanted by a plucky little boy and his clever dad.
