Lauren McGill is just mad about pickles. She decorates her room in every shade of pickle green and has her very own pickle costume. When her teacher announces a field trip to a pickle factory, Lauren is the only one in her class who cares about going . . . until everyone discovers how delicious pickles truly are. Suddenly, everyone in Lauren's world loves pickles. But where does that leave Lauren?
Jerdine Nolen's delightful text and Debbie Tilley's hilarious illustrations harmonize gloriously in a story that reveals it's what's inside that makes you different--and that sharing the things you love can be a joy.
