Pickles, Please! A Dilly of a Book by Andy Myer

If you ask a kid what their favourite snack is, most will say pizza, cupcakes, or ice cream. But not Alec Smart- he loves pickles! None of his friends at school understand his taste for pickled treats, nor do his parents. However, one day, just when Alec is pondering how lonely it is to be the only pickle enthusiast around, he comes across a pickle delivery truck and decides to jump in! What will happen when he arrives at the pickle factory? And who will he meet? The lesson learned in this humorous, pickle-filled adventure is that embracing your true colours brings with it special and tasty rewards!
