The Ice Cream Vanishes

Knopf. Jun. 2023. 40p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9780593309858.
PreS-Gr 1–Sarcone-Roach is back again with animal friends wreaking havoc. This time, readers are introduced to Squirrel, a self-proclaimed “natural at making snacks disappear,” who is trying to find just the right set of words to perform a vanishing trick. Squirrel needs the right combination of snacks and magic words, and although every magic word from Acorn-o begone-o to the most basic please is deployed, nothing works. Then Squirrel comes across a soft, cold treat that just might be the snack that’s needed. Squirrel rushes to find a friend to help with the disappearing act, but when they get back, the treat is gone. This fun and quick read has all the elements to keep toddlers entertained.
VERDICT This is a wonderful addition to any library and perfect for fans of books like Not That Pet! by Smriti Prasadam-Halls, Super Rooster Saves the Day by Maureen Wright, and Those Darn Squirrels! by Adam Rubin.
