Pickle and The Gift by P.R. Montgomery is a story about Molly ‘Pickle’ Gherkin, who was constantly teased by other children because she had a massive amount of warts all over her. Her nickname was ‘Pickle’ which she was endearingly called by her family, but when the kids at school called her ‘Pickle,’ it displayed a negative meaning. In her new school, Pickle feels so alone because she doesn’t have any new friends yet. One day, when being bullied by a group of kids led by Thug, Pickle ran to escape and stumbled into a hedge which led to a pond; this is where she meets Mr. Toad. Mr. Toad gives Pickle a gift. His gift is of instilling self-love, having hope and a new beginning for Pickle.

Pickle and The Gift by P.R. Montgomery is a beautifully written piece of work about self-love. We all have flaws, but how one deals with them translates into how others see you. Bullies are always looking for the weakness in others so that they can oppress you. Pickle and The Gift by P.R. Montgomery is ideal for elementary children because it helps them to begin to develop their being and self-worth. Also, it helps them to understand how to function around bullies and how bullying begins. If a child begins to feel good about themselves, they in turn begin to attract others with great self-worth as well. Getting and reading a copy of Pickle and The Gift by P.R. Montgomery is ideal for that special child who is experiencing low self-worth or bullying.
