What would you do for a 'real bathtub' straight from the Sears, Roebuck catalog? In 'The Pickle Patch Bathtub' by Frances Kennedy, you can read the true story of Donna Philp's quest for a bathtub that would fit her and her brothers and sisters, 'just right'. By working together growing and selling cucumbers, the Phelps children were able to make their dream come true.

Picky Mrs. Pickle

Christine M. Schneider (1999), 32 pages

Picky Mrs. Pickle definitely knows what she likes and can't seem to try anything new. She has only green dresses in her closet, wears only eau de pickle perfume, eats only pickle pie, and has had her hair styled exactly the same way for ages. She is as happy as can be, doing the same thing day after day. That is until little Sophie Claire comes along and convinces her that maybe she isn't as 'happy' as she thought she was. 'Picky Mrs. Pickle' is an amusing story in rhyme that illustrates to the young reader the benefits of trying something new!

This would be everyone's dream come true - a shop with the most amazingly delicious pies - apple, cherry, peach, lemon meringue, French silk, banana cream, custard, pecan, strawberry-rhubarb, custard - the list is endless. The pie fillings were extraordinary but it was the pie crust that had everyone talking. Got a craving for pie? Well, then just stop by Aunt Polly's Pie Shop and pick out a pie. Remember to say thanks - no need to pay - Aunt Polly bakes pies because it makes people happy. And everyone in Ipswich, Pennsylvania was very happy . . . until Aunt Polly died and the shop closed. Aunt Polly's niece Alice had helped her in the pie shop for years, gathering the ingredients, pricking the pie crusts just so and tending to anything that needed tending to. Everyone assumed the pie crust recipe was written down and everyone wanted to be the one to have it. Because with that recipe they could be the next winner of the Blueberry Award. Aunt Polly had won 13! Alice and her friend Charlie find themselves in the middle of a major mystery revolving around the cat Lardo and the missing pie-crust recipe. You will never guess how it all unfolds!

This book made me want to live in Ipswitch so that I could taste Aunt Polly's delicious pies! I loved hearing the songs that Alice made up on the audio book.
