When Ice Cream Had A Meltdown

Book Synopsis

A laugh-out-loud picture book from master storyteller, Michelle Robinson, and illustrator extraordinaire, Tom Knight.

Finally she FLOPS and FLINGS herself down on the floor.

“I give up!” Ice Cream hollers, “I can’t take it any more!”

Life inside the ice cream van is full of excitement – the ice creams and lollies can’t wait to be picked!

But – oh no! – no-one wants a plain ice cream, and that’s exactly what our friend Ice Cream is. As she sees friend after friend being picked instead of her…

Ice Cream has a MELTDOWN!

Will Ice Cream be stuck in the freezer forever, or is her happy ending just around the corner…?

Our Review Panel says...

We love Michelle Robinson’s funny books that give favourite foods a new lease of life!

When Ice Cream Had a Meltdown is a super story book about an ice cream (Mr Whippy style, complete with cone and flake) who feels saddened that none of the customers ever chooses his plain flavour over the more exciting, commercialised lollies on offer from the ice cream van. Young readers love the emotive expressions and the different ice cream characters, and will surely relate to the ice cream’s struggle to control his emotions as the tension builds towards a full on meltdown.

Cildren love talking about which ice creams they would choose as much as the story itself (the end pages offer a brilliant visual menu of options!). This rhyming text is a good book to choose for a lighthearted and fun storytime to bring smiles to faces young and old.
