He decides to pay a visit to his friend Froggy who happens to live in a very unexpected place, under the sea, in a very unusual home, a crystal bubble. Tony and Froggy think that it’s just another day under the sea visiting a mermaid market but they have no idea they will find themselves in quite a hard situation where their interpersonal skills will be put to the test and also their ability to be creative and kind.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
It all started more than 15 years ago. I use to babysit a group of 5 siblings and their favorite part of the day was storytime. I made up so many stories but the one that stuck was Tony The Pickle in the Pickle Factory. I had to tell it over and over again and later develop more characters and more exciting plots. At some point, I stopped babysitting them and went on to babysit more children and the stories would keep on being exciting and fun to tell.
I knew that I had to write them down but never got around it. Once my daughter was born and we started reading books before bedtime, her fascination for books and funny stories triggered me and got me thinking it was time to bring the stories of Tony to paper.
So I got writing and the rest is history.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I was trying to think about the funniest thing that I could animate and bring to life. The first thing that popped in my head was a pickle.
This pickle couldn't just be your average pickle. It needed a boost of magic and whim. He got all his super abilities from his magical fairy mom and some quite surprising from his pickle dad.
Not your average pickle.
The last time we saw Tony, he was on his way home and had decided to visit his friend Froggy, who lives under the sea.
When he got to the shore, Tony swam down the bubble elevator, which took him to Froggy's crystal bubble home.
They both stand there staring at each other, thinking they might have found a hidden treasure.
When they reach the belly of the cave, they see golden nuggets, crowns, and all types of jewelry.
"We are rich!" shouts Froggy.
"Froggy, are you sure this doesn't belong to someone else?" says Tony.
"It's all ours, Tony, don't worry about it," answers Froggy.
As Froggy starts grabbing handfuls of gold they hear a yawn. "Ahhhwaaaah."
