Product Description

In this charming sequel to the classic "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, " Kate and Henry eagerly await Grandpa's return from a vacation that his postcard says has been one of the best and most unusual ever. Thinking about that postcard Kate drifts off to sleep that night and... "With Henry as my co-pilot..." she visits the strange 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. 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.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I owned 'Cloudy with a chance of meatballs' by same authors/illustrators and wanted other books by them. 'Pickles to Pittsburgh' turns out to be the sequel. I love the detailed illustrations in these books and the surreal story line, they are both unusual and imaginative. Although probably for a child of six onwards, the wonderful pictures and fantastical story means my four year old loves these books. She really engages with them and asks lots of questions. They are much requested books at bedtime and with such enduring stories, I can continue to see them being so for a few more years. Highly recommended and great fun!

Not Returning to Chewandswallow. 13 Oct. 2003
By tvtv3 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought PICKLES TO PITTSBURGH was the sequel to CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, but I was somewhat mistaken. The children from the first story do visit Chewandswallow, but only in a dream. The illustrations in this book are just as original as the ones in the first. However, the story is lacking and doesn't have the charm of the original story. Young children don't seem to mind that, though, and like reading the stories back to back. If you're familiar with CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, you maybe disappointed somewhat after reading PICKLES TO PITTSBURGH. However, if you're just looking for a book to read to kids, it's a good choice.

Not as good as the first, but worth owning 25 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I remember reading the first book ("Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs") when I was in school and I loved it. I had no idea there was a sequal to it until it showed up on my recommendations list. I purchased it for my daughter. It is a good story, but for me at least, it was just a sequal to a much better story. I am glad I purchased both books, but my daughter and I really enjoy the first much more.

This book is very creative. People should read this book because it is hilarious. I am a second grader and I read this in my class.

Major letdown 11 Jun. 2005
By KR - Published on
Format: Hardcover
We absolutely loved "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" (I highly recommend it) but this is nowhere near as good. Most of the story is just rehashing the original book, with a little politically-correct "let's ship the extra food to the hungry" thrown in. Lame.

By M. Savoy - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of the BEST kids' books around. A fabulous sequel to "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs", this is just one of those fun books to share wtih your kids, and a must-have on the shelf, even if your kids are too old to apprecite it - everyone needs a little silliness now and again!
