Review
PreS-Gr 2—Sam's Sundaes is the place to go for a treat—and not just the sweet variety. Sam will serve up flavors for all, with no judgment. A blue cheese sundae for a tiny mouse? A mud cone for a giant hippo? Fish finger ice cream for a cat? No problem! Sam doesn't blink—he rustles up all requests in a wink. This is the phrase that repeats as five animal customers make increasingly crazy demands, resulting in a catchy read-aloud. The zany orders will have readers giggling, and the story concludes with a vanilla-loving gorilla who causes order envy with his very basic request. O'Byrne's detailed and colorful illustrations bring Jelly Bean Street to life and complement Strathie's rhythmic text in this original picture book. VERDICT A delightful story that works well as a read-aloud or as a book to be enjoyed independently. A great addition to most collections.—Lindsay Jensen, Nashville Public Library --Lindsay Jensen (Reviewed 11/01/2016) (School Library Journal, vol 62, issue 11, p80)
