The Tale of Ginger and Pickles Hardback
Illustrated by Beatrix Potter
Part of the Beatrix Potter Originals series
Ginger and Pickles (a terrier and a ginger cat) kept a very popular shop.
Their customers loved to buy their provisions there, but they were less keen to pay for them and ran up a gret deal of credit, making poor Ginger and Pickles lives very difficult indeed.

The story is about a Ginger and Pickles (hence the title), a cat and a dog who run a dry good store. They have great services and great sales but too great that they actually let their customers goes on credit till their business just went bankcrupt because nobody actually pays for their goods when they buys them. Eventually, their store reopens, bringing greater profits.This book has wonderful illustrations for the kids to enjoy. But I must admit, I don't really quite enjoy this book, and just reading it through to check it out. But of course, I can't speak for others.

This tale has surprising relevence in today's economy, as Pickles and Ginger run a store that fails--because they give an open credit line to anyone and everyone. Trying to bill the other animals doesn't work, so they close their store and have to find other work. Meanwhile, the other little stores in the story that take cash only survive. Huh.
