Week 2… Pete and Pickles by Berkeley Breathed

Berkeley Breathed book Pete and Pickles was inspired by a sketch that his five year old daughter had made on a restaurant napkin. He asked his daughter Sophie about her sketch of an elephant holding a pig and putting flowers on its head.

Why was the elephant doing that?

She answered “The pig’s sad. Because he’s lonely.”

Then she leaned in and whispered, “. . . But he doesn’t know it.”

Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Berkeley Breathed offers two new irresistible characters and a heartfelt, hilarious look at the rarity of true friendship.
