This is the only book in the series I ever read, and my wife hates the art, but i think it's brilliant. Walrus is more than worried, he's a paranoid hypochondriac! And then he's cured by a bicycle, which i obviously love.

But what makes the book is this fantastic imagination of just how incredibly wrong a bike ride can go. Sometimes I play Worried Walrus with my daughter: "if you don't brush your teeth, your teeth will turn yellow and fall out, and you'll choke on a tooth and be rushed to the hos

This is a nice book. I enjoyed it a lot and think that it is a good read for children especially those who might be having a hard day and seem to be worried about something. This is good for them and others students who might be having a bad day and can help them cheer up.

My mom bought me what I recall a whole shelf full of the Pickels Series book as a child. They came in the mail and always made me happy to get a new one. They were short sweet and had nice colorful cartoon pictures and the characters were cute and plentyful.
Why aren't these books still in print?! Perhaps this book has colored my personality, but I feel you, Walrus. I know what Pig is saying, but it's not as easy as all of that.
This was one of my top 10 books as a kid...I loved Sweet Pickles. It isn't as fascinating today, but I sure see a lot of my anxiety in Walrus.
