Meh. As far as children's books about ice cream go, this was not my favorite.
I think I should've gotten the original Larry book before this one to see the background of how Larry the Polar Bear came to live with the family. My 5 y/o son however thought this one was funny enough to warrant telling me that I *had* to read it as "my bedtime story" after he'd read it with my husband for his bedtime story. That's pretty high praise in my book. Of course he's an ice-cream fiend too.
A funny idea of a polar bear becoming a spokesman for an ice cream company. And I really like Larry. But I think some of the humor or concepts might be a bit on the old-fashioned side for today's group of kids. At least, the humor could be conveyed in a one-on-one reading, but in a storytime it might go over their heads...and stay over. Works well with the Sweet Treats theme, though.
he's so funny! love the dry humor.
