Mrs. Fickle loves her pickles Making pickles takes a lot of work. But Mrs. Fickle is more than up to the task. She can't wait to start digging in her garden. But she can't simply plant a pickle. She needs to select the right cucumber-pickle seeds. From the seeds come seedlings and eventually cucumbers. Then comes Mrs. Fickle's favorite part of the process: picking and pickling the cucumbers. This summer she might enter them in the county fair Lori Ries's delightful rhyming picture book, accompanied by Nancy Cote's cheerful illustrations, packs a lot of fun into a few select words and is perfect for reading aloud.
