Pickles, Pickles, I Like Pickles by Brigitte Brulz is the story of a young boy who likes pickles. He is curious to know if pickles grow on pickle trees. He plants the seeds he has bought with his mother when they went out. They water the garden and pull out all the weeds, but there are no signs of pickles growing in the garden. He wonders what kind of pickles will grow in the garden – dill pickles or bread and butter pickles. Soon little flowers bloom and little pickles grow to bigger pickles. There are lots of pickles to pick and finally he picks them all with his mother. He takes a bite from the freshly picked pickle and realizes that they do not taste like pickles. His mother tells him that they grew cucumbers and not pickles. He helps his mother to make pickles with the cucumbers. Now he has pickles to enjoy with his burgers, brats, and hot dogs.
