Summary Meet Katie Culver, a lonely five-year-old girl who strikes up a friendship with a tiny real mouse. When she discovers the mouse likes sweet pickles, she names him "Mr. Pickles". He arrives every night in the kitchen where Katie is waiting for him with a slice of a sweet pickle. Thus their friendship begins. Katie wants her beady-eyed new friend close to her all day and night so her parents buy her a hamster cage to keep him in. She is very happy carrying him around in the cage, but Mr. Pickles is very sad and Katie must figure out why. In this true story, you will learn a life lesson about friendship, just as Katie did. This book has brief chapters, not only making a perfect setting for "Read-Aloud Story Time" to encourage younger kids to read, but also is an easy read for boys and girls who are already reading on their own.
