This was a personal experience that manifested itself as a short poem and became an actual story.

“Write what you know,” or so the saying goes, and that is exactly what author Sally C. Knox has done in her children’s book “Pickles and Jane.”

“Pickles and Jane” shares the real life story of animal adoption.

“This was a personal experience that manifested itself as a short poem and became an actual story,” Knox said.

The book follows the adoption of Joe the dog as he makes his way from a kennel to his new home, only to find he’s upset the feline balance with the family’s two cats, Pickles and Jane. After struggling to bond with the cats, Joe the dog finds a forever home on a farm.

Full of colorful illustrations by Nikki Dzimira and clever rhymes, “Pickles and Jane” makes for the perfect tool for parents to discuss with their children the process of pet adoption and responsibility through an easy to read children’s book.

“Having read many stories to my children, especially those that rhymed, I thought this would be a good book for the non-reader, and also for those just learning to read,” Knox said.
