What’s the best cover name for a club that’s actually devoted to pranks? That’s what Ben wonders when he decides to make a club at school for pranks. He invites Frank, Oliver, Bean, and Sienna into his club...the League of Pickle Makers?
Pickle would be best for boys and girls in around fifth grade. Readers that like to play practical jokes will get some good ideas from this book and really want to keep reading.
Pickle is filled with humor and in some parts I was actually laughing out loud. I really enjoyed how unique each of the club members and other characters were, down to what they wore and how they acted. I would have liked this book better if it was longer. I didn’t want it to end and the entire book seemed rather short. Other than that, it was a great read to get a smile on your face.
