Stop That Pickle! by Peter Armour illustrated by Andrew Shachat*

When Mrs. Elmira Deeds enters Mr. Adolph's deli, she requests the last pickle in the jar.  The pickle, however, had different plans.  As he dashes through the city streets, various types of food chase him, shouting "Stop that pickle!".
A surprise ending.
Mothers will find the second to last sentence humorous.
A fun twist to the gingerbread man tale.
Strategies: predicting, compare/contrast
-Borrowed from the library.
*Highly recommend.
