JUVENILE FICTION / Cooking & Food
The Ezra Jack Keats Award–winning creator of Brick by Brick brings to delicious life the anxiety and elation involved in waiting in line to get ice cream.

As far as this ice-cream-loving kid is concerned, every meal should include ice cream. In any form, in every flavor, he loves it all. But what he doesn’t love is seeing other people with ice cream .  .  .  while he’s still waiting in line for his. That’s when he can get his mad, “no-ice-cream-yet, waiting-in-a-long-line face”—until he finally gets his cone, and his mad face melts into something sweet. Heidi Woodward Sheffield gently explores a range of emotions as they relate to this delicious, everyday experience.

AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR-ILLUSTRATOR: Heidi received the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Award for Brick by Brick.



VIBRANT COLLAGE ILLUSTRATIONS: As in Brick by Brick, Heidi’s gorgeous artwork is stunning and a real treat—it’s like ice cream for the eyes!



HIGHLY RELATABLE TREATMENT ABOUT A COMMON STRESSOR: Kids who hate waiting will understand exactly what the narrator is going through.

FUNNY OBSERVATIONS OF ICE-CREAM-EATING STYLES: Our observant boy amusingly notices the range of types of ice-cream-eaters.



GREAT EMOTIONAL ARC IN TEXT AND ART: From excited to frustrated, from blissful to dejected to happy once again, the text and illustrations portray a wide range of emotions experienced within a very short time—something relatable for young children, whose moods can change drastically from one minute to the next.

Heidi Woodward Sheffield received the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Award for Brick by Brick, her first picture book, and has received numerous awards from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators for her illustrations. On any given day, she can be seen taking photographs of textures that inspire her stories and collages. She lives in Northville, Michigan.

“Ice cream elicits an impressive repertoire of expressions from this book’s narrator, a self-named ’ice cream kid.’…Sheffield employs photographs—most evocatively of the coveted ice cream scoops—digital painting, and subtly mottled collage in this amiable meditation on the joys of a rich emotional life starring a funny, self-aware protagonist who wears their ice-cream-loving heart on their sleeve.”—Publishers Weekly

“Now here’s a young man who knows his ice cream…. The narrator for this tasty outing is an appealing Everykid with a mischievous, anticipatory smile stretched across his expressive brown face, and his keen observations of the many ways to enjoy a cone (from dribblers to ice cream-bearded babies) ring true. Sheffield’s collage artwork is especially evocative in its consistent contrast between grainy cut paper figures and backdrops mixed with photographs of the ice cream itself—smooth, glossy, and technicolor-bright.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
