If it isn't a pickle she doesn't want to taste it. If it isn't green she doesn't want to wear it. Mrs. Pickle has her eyes firmly shut to anyone she doesn't already know and anything she hasn't already tried. However, her niece Sophie Claire, who is as stubborn as her aunt is picky, knows that her aunt is just too scared to open her eyes. She won't give up until her aunt has tried a new "non-pickle" flavor during one of their weekly walks to Igor's Ice Cream stand. Flavors like Turnip Treacle may seem irresistible, but Mrs. Pickle holds her ground. Until one Sunday Sophie Claire makes her an offer she can't refuse. One taste of Eggplant Ripple and Mrs. Pickle will never be the same!

Whether you're picky or open-minded, five or fifty, you won't be able to resist this whimsical tale of a not-so-mature aunt and her wise young niece. Christine M. Schneider uses her quirky sense of humor and vibrant illustrations to show that the world is a colorful and lively place when you're willing to see beyondjust "shades of green."
