Item Description...
Ginger, a yellow tom-cat, and Pickles, a terrier, run a very popular general store but soon run into trouble because they give everyone unlimited credit.

Publishers Description
To celebrate Peter's birthday, Frederick Warne is publishing new editions of all 23 of Potter's original tales, which take the very first printings of Potter's works as their guide. The aim of these editions is to be as close as possible to Beatrix Potter's intentions while benefiting from modern printing and design techniques.

The colors and details of the watercolors in the volumes are reproduced more accurately than ever before, and it has now been possible to disguise damage that has affected the artwork over the years. Most notably, The Tale of Peter Rabbit restores six of Potter's original illustrations. Four were sacrificed in 1903 to make space for illustrated endpapers, and two have never been used before. Of course, Beatrix Potter created many memorable children's characters, including Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddle-duck and Jeremy Fisher. But whatever the tale, both children and adults alike can be delighted by the artistry in Potter's illustrations, while they also enjoy a very good read. Because they have always been completely true to a child's experience, Potter's 23 books continue to endure.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Dull and Half Pretty  Apr 26, 2010
My children have Peter Rabbit in the same format. The story of Ginger and Pickles is dull. My children who will sit through chapters of books were up and gone before we even got halfway through Ginger and Pickles. Some of the pictures are beautiful. Many are just simple sketches, with no color. I was hoping for another treasured classic, since they love Peter Rabbit, but this one was definitely a dud. The book looks pretty sitting on the shelf, but that is where it stays.
A Happy Ending  Mar 20, 2010
Ginger and Pickles (I love those names!) are two kind hearted shop keepers that are unfortunate to be largely taken advantage of. They offer their customers credit, and those customers ultimately never end up paying Ginger and Pickles back. They end up going bankrupt and closing the store.

After the closing, the former customers of that shop end up going to the only other store in town that took advantage of the closing by raising their prices. Having to deal with this, and some of the other trade-men's unfriendly customer service policies, the animal populace rejoices when Sally Hen-penny decides to reopen Ginger and Pickles' old store. She only accepts cash, but has great prices.

In the end, the customers are happy, however, the reality of how Ginger and Pickles were walked over is never addressed. There doesn't really seem to be a moral of this story, just a happy ending. It's cute, and I think your child will enjoy the story.

Beautiful illustrations  Sep 24, 2006
The story is about a Ginger and Pickles (hence the title), a cat and a dog who run a dry good store. They have great services and great sales but too great that they actually let their customers goes on credit till their business just went bankcrupt because nobody actually pays for their goods when they buys them. Eventually, their store reopens, bringing greater profits.

This book has wonderful illustrations for the kids to enjoy. But I must admit, I don't really quite enjoy this book, and just reading it through to check it out. But of course, I can't speak for others.
Child's first lesson in business?  Aug 15, 2000
Ginger and Pickles, a cat and dog who run a dry goods store are failing in business by giving unlimited credit. Their sales are enormous but there is never any money in the till. They restrain their natural desire to eat their rodent customers and sustain themselves by consuming inventory. Finally, they are forced to close the store when they cannot pay the annual tax bill. The store is later reopened by an enterprising chicken who gets a little flustered counting change, but nevertheless brings the story to a happy ending.
