About the Book


The first of the Frank TL Frogg and Friends series, War at the Ice Cream Store tells the story of one night at the Frozen Frogg, when Mustachio Pistachio and his “flavorite” flavor friends teach Bulli Vanilli a lesson in kindness and acceptance.

 

My Review

War at the Ice Cream Store Offers Great Messages to Young Readers. The authors use talking ice cream and sundae/dessert toppings and ingredients to present some serious messages about bullying--and empathy. As the various ice cream store "residents" endure long-term bullying from Bully Vanilli--they realize that they are stronger together in dealing with his abusive tactics. War at the Ice Cream Store is a fun book that uses unique characters and a fantasy setting to help children understand and learn to cope with some real-world issues.

 

War at the Ice Cream Store Serves Up Fun Word Play and Illustrations. It is difficult for even adults to hold back smiles at some of the "punny" wordplays at play in the book. From the character names to the dialogue and action scenes--the authors bring a lot to each page. The illustrations fit each character perfectly--and fill the pages with interest for young readers.

 

Would I Recommend War at the Ice Cream Store? This story is a unique way to open the door to discuss bullying with children. As the characters stand up to their bully--it is the perfect introduction to real-world, classroom/playground bullies and coping methods. I love children's books that are also fun for grown-ups to read! I would recommend it to families with younger elementary-aged students--or for classroom or community storytimes.  I look forward to sharing more from this series as it grows!
