Featuring a foreword by Phyllis Diller, That's NOT A Pickle! Part 7 is the latest volume in the delightful, rhyming softcover Pickle picturebook series, ideal for readers and listeners ages 5 and up. Do YOU know where True Beauty grows? True Beauty doesn't grow on trees. It doesn't grow in cornfields. It doesn't grow in flower gardens. And it doesn't grow on faces. True Beauty grows deep inside the heart until it blossoms, then shines and brightens the world around us. Frank and his sister Alice decide to host a local beauty contest (with a $10 entrance fee), and Frank is the judge. But the pretty and talented contestants are somewhat self-absorbed, compared to "ugly" Ms. Dilless the frog. Frank observes Ms. Dilless giving free swimming lessons to a group of tadpoles. She tells Frank, "They owe me nothing, my lessons are free. And I enjoy it so much, so why should they pay me?" Frank has found True Beauty! That's NOT A Pickle! Part 7 is a stand-alone story that will delight and entertain children AND adults of all ages. And you'll enjoy the charming, full-color illustrations by 16-year-old Josie Shipman throughout the book.
Part 5 of a planned 7-part series. Young children/readers, humorous verse, full-color illustrations throughout. Have you ever gone out of your way to avoid hurting your friend's feelings? That's a very good and kind thing to do, but sometimes your act of kindness can open up a whole can of worm. . . or, a wagonload of pickles! Then you may need someone else's help to solve the problem --maybe someone who is out of this world! Donald W. Kruse lives in Mt. Prospect, IL with his wife of 38 years, Marilyn, and their three dogs, Shania Tank (180 lbs!), Oscar, and Itchy Rat. In 1981 and 1982 Donald was totally disabled with an illness called vasculitis. With nothing else to do while convalescing at home, he bought a typewriter and a how-to book on typing. He enrolled in a home-study course for writing children's books and began writing and selling stories shortly thereafter. Today his vasculitis is in remission and his passion for writing thrives. His inspiration comes from his four grandchil-dren, all of whom affectionately call him "Beba" (bee-ba).
