Ice-Cream Cones for Sale! by Elaine Greenstein, Jeff Woodman, Tom Stechschulte


Can an ice cream controversy be red hot? You bet! Here's a colorful picture book that playfully presents the great debate over who invented the ice cream cone. A perfect summer treat.

Who invented the ice cream cone? Ernst Hamwi, a wafflemaker at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, claimed it was his idea. But Arnold Fornachou said his cones inspired Ernst's! David Avayou reported that he brought the cone back from Paris. And Charles Menches announced that his sweetheart created the dessert. Only one man holds the patent for the first cone-making machine, though, and his claims top them all...
In this picture book, Elaine Greenstein shows young readers that history is made by ordinary dreamers -- and it can be just as cool and delicious as a fresh cold ice cream cone.
