Pickles McPhee has always longed for adventure, and when the chance presents itself to run away to the Big City, this blue-striped monster grabs it. She's in awe of the lights, but the fun really begins when she finds a companion to show her around. Together, they visit the park, the swimming pool, and even a candy store. But the store's closed for the night. When Pickles inadvertently becomes a burglar, the jig is up and the adventure is over. For the time being.

Originally published in French as Une nuit en ville, A Night on the Town is about the sheer joy of exploring the new, whether it's a familiar playground seen in the moonlight, or a friend who is an improbable shade of blue.
