(with advance review copies available now)!
Seattle, Washington Nov 11, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Just in time to celebrate National Pickle Day on November 14, award-winning author and storyteller Peter B. Lewis announce his latest children’s book, The Pickleman from Bickleton! Set for publication and wide release in January 2023 from AUDISEE Media, Pickleman is an imaginative and colorful adventure with whimsy, rhyme, and plenty of crunches–and it will delight children of all ages!
Lewis is an accomplished author and popular local Seattle-area storyteller from Bickleton, whose 2020 book The Longest, Darkest Night! told the enchanting tale of a total lunar eclipse, as witnessed by a community of wondering nocturnal forest animals. The book was highly praised for its magic and charm, its scientific accuracy as a STEM-based learning experience, as well as for the beautiful illustrations by Leslie W. LePere. Now comes The Pickleman from Bickleton!, a colorful adventure in verse with a whimsical community of happy veggies, starring the Pickleman from Bickleton!
“Everyone loves pickles–in the U.S., we consume more than 5 million pounds of pickles every year,” comments author Peter B. Lewis. “The Pickleman from Bickleton! celebrates the popular pickle with a colorful town of veggies, and even teaches how to pickle along the way!” The Pickleman from Bickleton! includes poems packed with veggies everyone loves, from a sourpuss named Bruce, and his goofy goose named Zeus, to Mr. Tickleman and the dancing pigs of Tiggity Rig–not to mention the Wiggleton Wrangler and One-Eyed Jack from Nyack in his kayak–all on the road to Laffland in this sweetly illustrated book with cool ‘cumbers galore!
As always, Lewis combines playful storytelling (this time in rhyme) with useful real-world facts. Children will delight in the adventures of the Pickleman and his friends as they also learn how pickled vegetables are made, the importance of pollinators, how vegetables are farmed, and more. Perfectly complementing Lewis’s whimsical wordplay are the colorful, charming illustrations of the Pickleman’s bright and vivid veggie citizens by illustrator Casey Gerber.
