Gr 3-6 Americans love to eat ice cream800 million gallons of it a year. This book is packed with astonishing facts and stories about ice cream: its accidental invention; the development of the ice cream cone; the naming of new flavors; marketing wars over whose flavor tastes best. The black, white, and pink illustrations add charm and good humor to a book that is written lightheartedly by an obvious lover of ice cream. Complete with easy-to-follow recipes and comparable to Scoop on Ice Cream (Little, 1985) by Vicki Cobb, this is interesting and informative reading for children and ice cream addicts of all ages.
