The Lovereading4Kids comment

A hugely entertaining adventure story tinged with enough horror to delight but not really to terrify. Bored during a wet holiday, Bea and her friend Sam go exploring and come across the body of a dead man. What’s the story? Bea and her gang set out to follow the clues and unravel what’s been going on. A tremendous debut.

Lovereading comment:

Murder, Mystery and Chillies. A funny, mock-horror thriller-mystery from award-winning scriptwriter Rebecca Promitzer; The Pickle King is undoubtedly The Goonies for a new generation. Readers of Louis Sachar, Frank Cottrell Boyce and Paul Jennings will devour it in a sitting.
