Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Accompanied by his agreeable mom, Teddy Jones believes that his dreams have come true when he enters Thrill Chill ice cream shop. He takes power in the message that he can choose anything he wants and assumes the self-proclaimed role of the Ice Cream King. Immediately, his castle shines with delectable varieties of the creamy treat, and his surroundings reflect his sweet tooth's wildest cravings. Airy, cheerful spreads convey each tasty delight as Teddy slides down Whipped Cream Lane and fishes for nuts and cherries in a sailboat on an ice cream sea. The energetic narrative abruptly changes focus when the child realizes there is no one to share in his riches. Bouncy rhyming text clips along as Teddy's imaginative world builds. "I blast off in my spaceship/up to the ice cream moon./I zoom past ice cream meteors./I'm glad I have my spoon!" Changing emotions are reflected through shifting hues as the soft colors on lots of white space in the opening pages transform into full spreads of vibrant color. The original colors return as Teddy's life becomes a welcome reality once again. The message may be one-dimensional, but this feel-good journey maintains its sweetness, without being saccharine.—Meg Smith, Cumberland County Public Library, Fayetteville, NC

    One of our favorites!

    Both my sons love this book and so do my First Grader's classmates! They ask for this book each time I read to the class. The illustration and rhyming of the story captivates the children!
