About the Book

During one particularly noisy thunderstorm, Marilyn Szczap decided to distract her children, and herself, from the clashing and flashing outside by playing a story game. She began a story with a sentence or two. Each child then took their turn adding their sentences to the story. It was fun to see how the plot developed as the story grew. And that is how Percival Pickens was born. Marilyn Szczap and her children enjoyed the story game so much that they played the story game even when there was no storm. Percival Pickens was followed by many friends. Each story in Percival Pickens and Friends highlights a unique character in a humorous predicament. The resolution of each problem offers a gently stated lesson about a childhood dilemma.
