Week 1… Pete and Pickles by Berkeley Breathed

Pete is a perfectly predictable, practical, uncomplicated pig. At least, he was . . . before a runaway circus elephant named Pickles stampeded into his life, needing a friend.

Pickles is larger than life and overflowing with imagination. She takes Pete swan diving off Niagara Falls… And sledding down the Matterhorn…

Pete goes along for the wild ride and actually begins to enjoy himself . . . until Pickles goes too far. And Pete tells her she must leave. Yet sometimes the simple life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Mrs McKee choose this book for us to read…

She loves the beautiful illustrations Breathed has created and the way they help bring the story to life. Even though its a sad storyline the author slowly leads the reader towards a happy ending.
