In Pickles to Pittsburgh, the sequel to Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Kate drifts off to sleep and, with her brother Henry as her copilot, visits the land of Chewandswallow—a land characterized by massive amounts of food, immense carrots, leafy jungles of lettuce, and tuna fish sandwiches so gigantic they have to be moved by helicopter. And what the people of Chewandswallow are doing with all that food is most intriguing of all!

Fans of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs will applaud this return trip with its underlying message of generosity and a world community, available in a Classic Board Book edition that is perfect for the youngest of readers.

Plot[]

The book tells of the kids from the previous story receiving a postcard from their grandfather, who claims to be visiting the ruins of what was once the fabled town of Chewandswallow. The kids then go to sleep and dream that they are there with him, helping to rebuild the post-apocalyptic landscape and restore it to where it is livable again, as well as giving the massive amounts of food away to poverty-stricken developing nations and homeless shelters around the world. This proves to be difficult, as there could be more food storms on the way.
