If you know a child who has ever caught a wild animal, made a home for it in a bucket, gave it grass to eat, and named it something silly, this book is for you Have you ever wondered what the animal is thinking - and what important business we are keeping it from - when a child captures it?

Pickles Pinkerton is a grumpy toad (or frog, depending on whom you are asking) who enjoys rollerskating, investing, and learning new languages - activities he does alone. When he is caught by a young child, he is forced to socialize, while also trying to come up with an escape plan. Based on a true story involving the author's daughter (mostly).

Will he get home to feed his "pet" cricket and place his stock trades? Will he be the permanent new pet of an eager young child who loves to squeeze too hard? Will he always be grumpy and alone? Find out inside

Told through dialogue, this tale of friendship is full of minimalist, hand-drawn illustrations with visual and written humor (with several callbacks, for those paying attention). Pickles' personality really shines through, via his words, hobbies, and facial expressions. The author leaves a few scenarios up to interpretation, to allow for discussion and for the readers to decide what REALLY happened. This story is best told by those who enjoy getting into character and "performing" books for children.

A picture book tale for all who love to interact with wildlife, by an Indie writer and illustrator.
