For over twenty-five years, Crane’s comic strip, Pickles, has been delighting readers around the world, and for the first time Brian Crane brings his beloved characters into a book intended specifically for children. Crane’s crotchety but endearing senior, Earl Pickles, can be humorous and often touching, and when his precocious grandson, Nelson, asks his gramps to tell him a story, Earl’s imagination takes over. The two embark on a journey filled with whales, hot dogs, and an intense but lovable ostrich in a raincoat. Written by acclaimed Canadian children’s author Dianne Young, this quirky tale is sure to entertain children, fans of the strip, and anybody who enjoys a rollicking adventure.
