Item description for Pickle-Chiffon Pie by Jolly Roger Bradfield...
A long time ago there was a fat little king who ruled over the land as far as he could see in every direction. He was very wise, and his kingdom was a happy one. His wife, the Queen, was a very good cook and made him a pickle-chiffon pie every day. But every kingdom has problems. The King had a daughter, she was very nice and very beautiful, and every prince in the neighborhood wanted to marry her. Every day they came to the palace with flowers and gifts for her.

That was his problem What solution does the King come up with to save his kingdom from this tragedy?

Another Great Book! Aug 13, 2008
Sad to say, I'd never heard of Jolly Roger Bradfield before... until I found an original book at an Antique Book Fair. It was a bit too pricey for me so I checked out this site... YES! They're all here! Very cute stories and GREAT artwork. I will be getting them all!
One of my true favorites Jun 20, 2008
This book is fabulous through and through. I love the creative, quirky illustrations and the imaginative storyline, but what really sets this book apart is the beautiful message: that the right prince for a princess is the one who shows kindness and consideration for others. A great message for girls among the princess-fantasy filled world of books.
The Platinum Standard Mar 6, 2008
A reprint of a children's classic - entertaining storyline, whimsical illustrations, timeless moral lessons. It recently captured and held the attention of my son's entire kindergarten class as effectively as it did mine over 40 years ago. The lesson: compassion and thoughtfulness is worthy of the biggest rewards in life.
One of my absolute favorites as a child Jan 18, 2008
I've looked for this book for years, wanting to read it to my own children. How lucky I am that it has been republished and that I still have children young enough to properly enjoy it, and how sad that my older children missed it when they were in the prime audience age range!
This is a beautiful, thoroughly enchanting story which illustrates how woefully wrong it is to sacrifice the well being of others in striving for your own personal joy and success. I recall how taken I was with the colony of artist mice painting mini masterpieces and the pie making creature, how much I would have wanted them for my own even without the promise of a princess' hand in marriage (or prince's for that matter, though at age six I wasn't interested in either) as a reward. I was awed by Bernard's show of respect for creatures I would have had difficulty recognizing as anything other than toys before learning they had lives and purposes of their own. Some people go through their entire lives without learning that.
I absolutely love this book! Sep 20, 2007
I had this book when I was a little girl and it's always been my favorite kids book! I'm in the process of getting one to read to my kids also. Seeing the cover on here takes me back 20 years and that's very cool :)
