When Mrs. Elmira Deeds waddles into Mr. Adolph's deli and asks for a pickle, chaos erupts! The pickle escapes from the jar, and a cast of zany characters, including a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and seventeen toasted almonds, joins in the chase to stop the pickle as it attempts to run away. "Sophisticated art, in a funny book with broad appeal." -- Kirkus Reviews

Great book

User Review  - Mommy - Target

My 2 year old loved it! She usually doesn't give to much attention while mommy or daddy is reading books but this one was a different story. A special when we all scream " stop that pickle" she liked that a lot! Read full review
