Once upon a time there was a village shop. The name over the window was "Ginger and Pickles."
Ginger and Pickles (a terrier and a ginger cat) keep a very popular shop. They have ever so many customers, even more than Mrs Tabitha Twitchet). They like getting so many people coming into the shop but they have a small problem, their customers aren’t paying for anything at all.
When Ginger and Pickles find themselves having to eat their own shop provisions and having visits from the police then they realise they might have to re-think their business plan.
One of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators, Beatrix Potter created some of the most recognisable characters in English literature, including [Peter Rabbit](/book/the-tale-of-peter-rabbit/beatrix-potter/9780723247708), [Jemima Puddle-Duck](/book/the-tale-of-jemima-puddle-duck/beatrix-potter/beatrix-potter/9780723247784) and [Benjamin Bunny](/book/the-tale-of-benjamin-bunny/beatrix-potter/beatrix-potter/9780723247739).
Today Beatrix Potter's original twenty-three tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, sound books, christening gifts and more. These original editions bring the world of Beatrix Potter to life just as readers have enjoyed them for generations. The Tale of Ginger and Pickles, the fifteenth book to be published, is number eighteen in this series of charming stories.
