I bought this book as a party favor for the boys attending my child's ICE CREAM THEMED party. I read the story, but felt it didn't really have an ending... perhaps that is what the author wanted and maybe for the age group that is a good thing. I did not read before I purchased but had I done so, I may have chosen a different book.
