It was so unique, so inspiring in such a strange sort of mind-bending way, right down to the whole idea of a "pickle-and-fish tree" even in the intriguing way the chapters are titled. I was completely drawn in to the story; amazed by the poignant, current information; refreshed and delighted by the quirky and playful style and narration; and inspired by the message of the story in a way I never expected. This book deserves my sincerest accolades for not being cliche, not a carbon copy of anything I've ever read before. The author offers a quirky but intelligent writing style and a gift for storytelling that is amazing. I was so glad to read something new, something from the pen of a rare gem in the writing world.
Truly, one of the best books I've ever read - a little book jam-packed with a huge message. It makes me want to go outside and plant a pickle myself!
This is not a `normal' book. I expect it would have been passed over by publishers lacking in imagination. The style of writing reminded me a lot of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The humour is off-the-wall. But it is a great read for young and old alike, especially out loud.
My daughter's reaction to having reached the end is perhaps the most telling commentary of all. "No, I don't want it to finish. I want it to have infinity pages!"
This is a super, well written story to be recommended and read with your kids and grandkids. Walter has a wonderful, delightful writing style kids (and adults) will enjoy. Thank you, Walter.
A must buy for any young person, or for any parent who still enjoys reading to their little ones. Really well written!
Corie is loud, messy, and in her parent's opinion, not very mature or steadfast. But Corie knows who she is, and follows her heart in this terrific story, and decides she will feed the entire universe by planting a pickle and fish tree. Yes, she is an imaginative and creative girl--read as she uses her unique and yet hidden skills to not only grow a tree, but change the world. Who knew that planting a single tree could cause such a wonderful chain of events!
This lovely tale brought back some of that feeling we all had as kids that anything is possible--that gorgeous, maybe magic is real notion we only get glimpses of as adults.
The kids I read this to were enchanted.
I hope you read how Corie makes a change in the world, and I have a feeling you will love it as much as me.

I loved the dialogue in this book the most. It reminded me of the way I talked when I was little and I guess how every other kid talks. You know what I mean. Read morePublished on May 30, 2014 by A. Brantley
