Pete & Pickles
Pete & Pickles | Berkeley Breathed
8 posts | 9 read | 9 to read
Pete is a perfectly predictable, practical, uncomplicated pig. At least, he was . . . before a runaway circus elephant named Pickles stampeded into his life, needing a friend. Pickles is larger than life and overflowing with imagination. She takes Pete swandiving off Niagara Falls. (Sort of.) And sledding down the Matterhorn. (Sort of.) Pete goes along for the wild ride and actually begins to enjoy himself . . . until Pickles goes too far. And Pete tells her she must leave. Yet sometimes the simple life isn?t all it?s cracked up to be. Pulitzer Prize?winning cartoonist Berkeley Breathed offers two new irresistible characters and a heartfelt, hilarious look at the rarity of true friendship.

How can you not love Pete and Pickles. If you like the warm happy feelings and the love story of UP, then you must read this book. Not only is the story endearing and heartwarming, the illustrations are amazing. Breathed has this way of making his illustrations breath, and live, both in his world and in others as if it was an everyday occurrence instead of the magic it is.

#AbbaInAugust Day 9: A #LayAllYourLoveOnMe peculiar love story, this unlikely pair would have to deal with each other‘s strangenesses and play around with each other‘s boundaries, seeing just how much one can bend without breaking, as they gradually understand and glimpse a vision of a life without the other.

No reading tonight as we are getting Andy stuff done. Ughhhh. So boo took me to dinner. His choice of restaurants. But while I was powdering my nose he ordered Fried pickles. He HATES the things. I love them. But I never get them. The only thing since he doesn't eat them the dogs are getting the left overs.

Stacy_31 Fried pickles with ranch is so yummy! So thoughtful of him to order them for you. 😊 1y

This book is FA BU LOUS! So many lessons can be gleaned from it from animals in captivity to art, I need this story in my classroom. After reading its heart-pounding highs and lows, I read the story‘s origin and fell in love all over again! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Zelma I absolutely love love love this book. I read it for Story Time when I was a children‘s librarian and went over well. Very dramatic but joyful. ❤️ 2y
