ONCE upon a time there was a village shop. The name over the window was "Ginger and Pickles." 


It was a little small shop just the right size for Dollsâ€"Lucinda and Jane Doll-cook always bought their groceries at Ginger and Pickles. 


The counter inside was a convenient height for rabbits. Ginger and Pickles sold red spotty pocket-handkerchiefs at a penny three farthings. 


They also sold sugar, and snuff and galoshes. 

In fact, although it was such a small shop it sold nearly everything -except a few things that you want in a hurry like bootlaces-, hair-pins and mutton chops. 

Ginger and Pickles were the people who kept the shop. Ginger was a yellow tom-cat, and Pickles was a terrier. 


The rabbits were always a little bit afraid of Pickles.
