Lisa Catano, an elementary school teacher who lives in Connecticut with her husband, children, and a cat named Lilly, has published her new book “Pickles and Mayonnaise”: a delightful addition to any elementary or middle school library.

Some kids are scared of the dark. Others are afraid of monsters. But when it comes to ten-year-old Kayden Richards…well, let’s just say he’s really not a fan of pickles.

And while you might think that no normal person should ever be frightened of a food, perhaps the reason why Kayden hates pickles so much is because he’s always in one—whether he’s causing mischief at home, finding himself in sticky situations at school, or brewing up trouble with the old ladies in his neighborhood’s watch group.

But hey, life is hard enough when you’re ten. And that’s before you throw in a mother who’s a drill sergeant, a wild skydiving grandma, and an annoying little brother whose name rhymes with yours.

Not to mention being stuck with a broom-riding witch and mad scientist as your teachers. Plus, a kid on your basketball team whose main goal in life is to make yours miserable.

But with Kayden so busy trying to steal the spotlight and seek revenge, will he ever stop to learn the importance of working together as a team?

Published by Page Publishing, Lisa Catano’s engrossing book is an entertaining choice for young, independent readers.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Pickles and Mayonnaise” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
