I loved the “Sweet Pickles” books as a kid, but they really don’t hold up very well. I’ve still got a near-full set (21 out of the 26 A-Z animal character-based books) and their bright colors and simple illustrations attract the interest of my toddler at storytime, but every time he picks one, everyone gets pretty bored by page 8. The characters are all pretty indecisive and lazy.
Still though – I always wanted the Sweet Pickles Bus to come to my house. It never did. My parents didn’t love me.
