— Peter B. Lewis
Peter B. Lewis is an accomplished author and popular local Seattle-area storyteller from Bickleton, where the fun shines each and every day. He has written and produced scores of educational audio and video programs for children over the course of his 50-year career in sound design, and he delights in playing with words and flights of fancy while also providing tales that educate children along the way. His 2020 book THE LONGEST, DARKEST NIGHT! told the enchanting tale of a total lunar eclipse, as witnessed by a community of wondering nocturnal forest animals. The book was highly praised for its magic and charm, its scientific accuracy as a STEM-based learning experience, as well as for the beautiful illustrations by Leslie W. LePere. Now comes THE PICKLEMAN FROM BICKLETON!, a colorful adventure in verse with a whimsical community of happy veggies, starring the Pickleman from Bickleton—the ideal book for kids ages 4 and up (and with tongue-twisting rhymes that will tickle their parents, too)!
“This book was a labor of love, and I’m so delighted to announce its release,” comments author Peter B. Lewis. “The book includes poems packed with veggies and rhymes and colorful characters, from a sourpuss named Bruce, and his goofy goose named Zeus, to Mr. Tickleman and the dancing pigs of Tiggity Rig, the Wiggleton Wrangler, and One-Eyed Jack from Nyack in his kayak, plus lots of cool ’cumbers galore!
In PICKLEMAN, Lewis combines playful rhymes with useful real-world facts. Children will delight to the adventures of the Pickleman and his friends as they also learn how pickled vegetables are made, the importance of pollinators, how vegetables are farmed, and more. Perfectly complementing Lewis’s whimsical wordplay are the colorful, charming illustrations of the Pickleman’s bright and vivid veggie citizens by illustrator Casey Gerber.
To celebrate the launch of THE PICKLEMAN FROM BICKLETON!, Peter will be offering a variety of fun promotional activities for kids on his website, at https://peterbstories.com/the-pickleman-from-bickleton/, including downloadable coloring book pages with quirky and charming scenes from the PICKLEMAN book, fun pickle facts, and more.
