Ice Boy lives in the freezer with his family. His parents said the best thing that could happen to an ice cube was to be chosen, but Ice Boy wanted more. His parents said to never go outside, but he did. His doctor said never go in the sun, but he did anyway. He had a great time exploring the world, but soon he became….Water Boy. A clever story introducing the water cycle, geared for the youngest readers.
Graphically, we see the world from an ice cube’s point of view where ice cream cones, fudgsicles, muffins and ice cream sandwiches decorate or are used for furniture in his home.
In the end, Ice Boy meets back with his parents and Ice Boy takes them on an adventure!
