Grade 2Â4ÂPete is a predictable and practical pig. One stormy night his world is turned upside down when he encounters Pickles an elephant on the lam from the circus in his room. Pickles is anything but predictable yet Pete finds himself drawn to her and the two become unlikely friends. The relationship hits a snag when Pickles treads too far and Pete makes a decision that ends up endangering both of their lives. This heartwarming tale is packed with adventure imagination and the all-important message of accepting differences. The illustrations alternate from naturalistic renderings of fantastical scenarios to flat compositions reminiscent of traditional comic strips. In the former Pete and Pickles seem to pop off the page in the lush landscapes and it is in these pages that the story soars. Less-discerning readers may miss plot points expressed in the drawings but not in the text. Great for sharing one-on-one or for reading aloud.Â Beth Cuddy Seward Elementary School Auburn NY Copyright Reed Business Information a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
