Pickles and Ginger tend the customersA store owned by a dog and cat!

Ginger and Pickles, a cat and a dog, run a very busy, extremely unprofitable store. (They offer credit and no one ever pays.) Their customers include rabbits and mice; the rabbits are terrified of Ginger (they make his mouth water) and the mice of Pickles.

The Tale of Ginger and Pickles is a true treasure among Beatrix Potter stories, for a variety of reasons:
  • The story is quite sophisticated and filled with little ironies
  • Children learn many concepts relating to running a business
  • It details a huge swath of Miss Potter's richly imagined world, perhaps more than any of her other stories.
It would be hard to think of a Potter tale that offers more opportunities for learning. Teachers, hear that?
