An Uncle Sunny special for the ice cream cart is NOT something to get your hopes up on a hot summer’s day in forest. In fact it is something to avoid at all costs.
Jake and Jeremy weren’t so lucky so they decided to start an ice-cream cart of their own. Unfortunately Uncle Sunny sees this as a declaration of war! Jake, Hoppy, Jeremy and their classmates must come up with a battle plan to save children from the Uncle Sunny special. This is war!
The Ice-cream war is a delectable treat for school aged children. Characters are easy to relate to and the humour is giggle and snort worthy.
The reader will become lost in the pages eager to find out which battle will be won. From killer ponies to mouse poo tapped ice-cream. Edwina Howard fails to disappoint. If I had to rate this book out of 10 I would surely rate it 110!
