When Mrs. Elmira Deeds waddles into Mr. Adolph’s deli and asks for a pickle, chaos erupts! The pickle escapes from the jar, and a cast of zany characters, including a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and seventeen toasted almonds, joins in the chase to stop the pickle as it attempts to run away. Can anyone stop that pickle?
Peter Armour and Andrew Shachat both live and work in California.
