Roger Bradfield was forced out of his retirement to write The Pickle-chiffon pie Olympics as a sequel to the Pickle-Chiffon Pie which was written almost 50 years ago! The characters  have interesting names and so do the games themselves. The dragon wrestling, giant climbing and moat swimming games will leave you wanting for more  The events in the Olympics are stamped with his highness royal seal there is not a chance even an adult will doubt its authenticity!

We love reading this book. It is so playful and fun with funny contestant characters, unusual and silly Olympic events and even a surprise ending! The book is illustrated with fun watercolors paired with silly, but comical story. This book is such a silly read aloud story for both adults and kids.
