School Library Journal - 03/01/2022 K-Gr 3—An ice cream sundae contest turns into a humorous quest for Blue, Barry, and Pancakes, everyone's favorite worm, frog, and rabbit trio. To build the best sundae and help Barry finally win a coveted trophy, the three friends seek the greatest chocolate ice cream in the universe, located in a yeti's lair on top of Mount Choco. Each protagonist helps overcome obstacles, from crossing the Sea of Sea Sickness to impressing the yeti with funky dance moves. Creative paneling and focus lend variety to the layouts—Barry's echoing cry in his empty trophy room takes up a full page, while Blue's underground jaunt to retrieve sunglasses results in the dynamic and fun display of character movement known as the De Luca effect. Back matter includes extra gags and a guide to making a miniature comic. VERDICT Humor carries three tight-knit friends underwater and over mountains; new and returning readers alike will be charmed. - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
