This is a very funny book, and I love the idea of a time travelling ice cream van. The storyline is unique and witty, perfect for fans of David Walliams. Although it was short, every page was packed with action, humour and plenty of emotion. I loved it!
Ever since her granddad dies, izzy resolves to eat ice cream every day in memory of him. Disaster strikes when, while Izzy is eating her broccoli, her dad breaks to her some terrible news: all the ice cream has melted!!! Izzy doesn't know what to do; what if she starts to forget her beloved grandpa? Then, in the middle of the night, Izzy remembers the ice cream van. She sneaks outside and into the van. Then, she quickly gobbles up a mouthful of Mr Whippy. But she forgot about one thing... BRAIN FREEZE!!!!!!After going on a unforgettable journey through time, there is one last person that Izzy needs to meet: Grandpa. Will she see him in time, or will it be too late?
This book is definitely recommended to children aged 8+, however 7 year old would probably enjoy it to be read to them.
