Sweet as a Pickle and Clean as a Pig (1964)
By Carson McCullers

This collection of children's verse written shortly before her death was dedicated to children she knew and loved: Emily and Dara Altman, the children of her friend and lawyer Floria Lasky, and her agent's son, Tony Lantz. With this volume, Carson insisted on calling her verses rhymes instead of poems because they were unlike any of her earlier published poetry.
