Little Kid Reaction: My boys LOVED this book. It's a book about ICE CREAM! What more could a kid want? Spying hot fudge? Yum. Cherries? Yay! Ice Cream Cones? YESSSS! This is one we read a lot!

Big Kid Reaction: I loved the message: sharing is GOOD. I also loved the way the book is presented. The author, illustrator, and editor have created two worlds in the manner of the famous Wizard of Oz movie. The real world is black and white (sparse light pink highlights), with Arial font type, and prose writing. The fantasy world is FLOODED with color, with Curlz font type, and rhyming text. When he returns to reality, he is back to his normal world again. Just beautifully done. The rise and fall of the story is balanced, and the story is just the right length for kids 2 to 5 years old.
