"Squirrel and Sloth want to buy a bicycle so that they can go FAST. But when they see how much a bicycle will cost, they realize they'll need to earn some money. Just then, they come upon a "Help Wanted" sign -- pickle packers needed! So Squirrel convinces the manager at the pickle factory to give them jobs. Squirrel and Sloth have very contrasting skill sets, and things do not go according to plan. After a few false starts, the pair end up with 677 ½ jars of pickles that the factory can't sell, and only enough money to buy a couple of ice pops to enjoy on their way home. Squirrel starts to gobble his right away, but Sloth eats so slowly that his melts and drops to the ground. "Too bad," says Squirrel. "We can share mine." But then Sloth has a brilliant idea ... PICKLE POPS! A celebration of friendship, teamwork and cooperation -- and a testament to hard work and ingenuity."-- Provided by publisher.
