    1 thought on “The Tale of Ginger and Pickles”

    1. Traditional start of the year with a Beatrix Potter story. I liked this one. It's not really a consistent storyline, but charming and a sweet little story nonetheless. I like the combination of simple black/white pen drawings and the familiar full colour drawings of Beatrix Potter. Charming little book.

    2. This tale has surprising relevence in today's economy, as Pickles and Ginger run a store that fails--because they give an open credit line to anyone and everyone. Trying to bill the other animals doesn't work, so they close their store and have to find other work. Meanwhile, the other little stores in the story that take cash only survive. Huh.

    3. This was an odd little tale. It felt like a lesson in capitalism. Pickles and Ginger own a general store and they let everyone get things on credit. They never collect the money and so they have no money. The store closes and the animals move on. It is so odd. I guess it is saying you have to be able to collect the money. My niece wasn't as into this one.

    4. In real life i dont like Ginger and Pickles, i remove them whenever i see them in my food. Haha! Oh well story was a okay, i dont really understand the story, haha i am confused perhaps hmmm

    5. Delightful and very funny, though minimally narrative, this relatively lesser-known Potter classic treats of Ginger and Pickles, a cat and terrier who run (very poorly) a shop that competes with Miss Tabitha Twitchett's, primarily by giving credit whereas hers does not, Consequently, their sales are significantly higher, but their revenues non-existent, until they go bankrupt. Many very funny, mordant moments, notably after the pair close the business, and we learn that Ginger now lives in "the [...]

    6. The only i have ever found children's book that teaches children about credit. Very humorous but at first a difficult read only because it was so novel. I keep pausing, thinking 'is it really saying that?'My children are under 5 and I think it was hard to get them involved in the story. It had the cuteness and simplicity of potters other books. It was humorous. The cat badly wanted to eat the mice customers and the dog was in trouble with the law for not renewing his dog license. Of the Potter b [...]

    7. This would have to be my favorite story so far. Eventhough this book is really old it still has some revelance to todays economy. Pickles and Ginger are running a store that fails horribly. They give their customers open credit and that seems to be the downfall of their business.

    8. In 1909 Beatrix Potter foresaw the ways that retailing would go, and these are the lessons I have learnt from her study:1. Don't give credit.2. People have no understanding of value-for-money.

    9. SFPL big book sale 2017cat and a terrier make terrible shopkeepers. I was quite vexed for them that no one would pay back their credit but pleased when the cat ate all the rabbits.

    10. A still very poignant story about shop life and retail in a fun tale form. One of Beatrix Potters stories that really applies to life 100 years on. A wonderful tale that shows if people take the miky with what they can get on credit. Yet I love seeing all the characters from her other books in one place doing their shopping. A fun read.

    11. I have arranged my thoughts into a haiku:"One just may forget,Courting customer favor:They'd swallow you whole."

    12. My mom always told me I learned to read when I was three, and by the time I was four, I could read almost anything. In sixth grade, I once told a teacher that I learned to read when I was three. It was just a factoid about myself that was relevant, so I said it. He said simply, "No you didn't," and then walked away. I was embarrassed: was I repeating the statements of a proud mom over-exaggerating? I stopped sharing that fact about myself because I assumed it must be untrue. Why would he have sa [...]

    13. Something of a warning to treat your shopkeepers well. Ginger and Pickles run a very nice shop, but they accept payment in credit, and have a hard time collecting. To the point where they finally have to close shop and skip town to avoid their own debts, despite their ledgers showing so much in sales. After their disappearance, other shops raise prices, refuse the return of goods, and generally abuse their customers. In the end, a middle ground shop is opened, with good products and fair prices, [...]

    14. The book had great illustrations in it and the plot was was good but only up until the last part--that part was NOT good(for me, yeah I didn't like it). Some parts of the book was rather confusing for me--and I'm in high school! I didn't get why such things would happen and how other things are considered "law" and such but I had taken into consideration that this short story(make that really short story) is a "Children's Novel". But at my age, I didn't get some parts of it. I would give this bo [...]

    15. I politely disagree with Lesley's review. While the book is strongly slanted in favor of a cash-only economy, it ignores the social value of credit, and too, it ignores the importance of a social safety-net. Dangerously regressive, this book attempts to inculcate a false feeling of financial equality between not only individuals of specific species, but also between all species. Furthermore, it perpetuates harmful stereotypes of terriers and encourages police profiling of same.I bought it. Well, [...]

    16. This is another Beatrix Potter book. The original book was copyrighted in 1909. Illustrations are both in black-and-white and color, and the book is in story form.The term “Ginger & Pickles” refers to a small shop frequented by various animals. It's sort of a very miniature grocery store with extras. Ginger is a cat, and Pickles is a dog.They give credit, meaning people put their purchases on a tab. Unfortunately, it seems that the customers never pay their tab. The shop fails, of course [...]

    17. Kisah Ginger dan Pickles nya agak nanggung, kalau dilihat dari sisi masalah ekonomi di daerah itu. Agak kurang mantap juga dengan penyelesaiannya. Intinya, memang ketiadaan tanggung jawab bisa merugikan orang lain, tapi orang-orang (atau boneka-boneka dan hewan-hewan) yang tidak bertanggung jawab kok rasanya tetap tenang-tenang saja.Bagian yang paling saya suka adalah pembukaannya, tentang Ginger yang tidak tega melayani para tikus, dan penjelasan tentang kata 'credit' itu keren dengan caranya s [...]

    18. 3.5 stars.I'm not an expert on British currency so a little of this was lost on me, but I still enjoyed reading it to my children. Beatrix Potter's illustrations are timeless and appealing in their seemingly contradictory simplicity and detail. This tale read so much like a bedtime story from a favorite relative told to her little charges as a last-minute request that it was throughly enjoyed. Though I am now curious about British economics at the time.

    19. You either are or aren't a Beatrix Potter fan, but this is one of her best! I used this when I worked as the Junior School Librarian at a posh Prep School to teach 1st and 2nd graders about the evils of credit and how poor Ginger and Pickles, a cat and dog who ran a General Store and gave credit to their customers, overextended themselves and ultimately had to declare bankruptcy. An excellent way to teach the ways and means of living within your means to the small fry set.

    20. So Ginger and Pickles own a shop and give everyone credit resulting in them going bankrupt, and everyone is pissed they stay in the neighborhood. Then bitchy chicken takes over the shop and everything is fine and everyone is paid. WTH! It would seem to be a moral on extending credit but I can't be sure. Also, the doll people are freakin' me out.

    21. A beautiful little tale follow Ginger and Pickles as they try and run their shop giving open credit to friends who sadly take advantage of their good faith. Superbly written and beautifully illustrated in Potter's usual graceful style, a story that will appeal to adults and children alike.

    22. Two crazy shopowners run their business by allowing unlimited credit. They eventually get summoned, and the shop is shut down. "Ginger is living in the warren. I do not know what occupation he pursues; he looks stout and comfortable. Pickles is at present a gamekeeper." Things seem to work out.

    23. Another one we only got from the library occasionally when I was a kid (we owned most but not all of Beatrix Potter in my mother's childhood editions), so I have not such a good memory of it, but did find it oddly compelling due to unfamiliarity at the time, I believe.
