This is an interesting concept for a children's book. Basically it's about the typical week in an ice cream cone's life and how much they get paid per gig. I'm giggling just thinking about that. The illustrations are unique and have this cute anime vibe to them. Died laughing when ice cream man had to be a golfball. He got paid a grip for that, lol.
A nice surprise for kids (and me) is the game at the end of the book. It's kind of an I-Spy game and those are always fun. Plus there's a "Sunae" art project for kids to do as well. The illustrations in the book are made using colored sand so the author instructs kids how to make one of their own. Very cool.
I think kids would like this book for sure. Now let me go because I never did finish the game and find the Worried Monkey :)
