Crankiness, chattering teeth and camouflaged edible architecture make this unusual icebox exodus a surprisingly popular adventure in puns and perspective.

Thanks for not giving away the ending. It sounds as though this is a good example of irony in picture books, which I think–and you show–that kids do pick up on and love. Will look for this one on the shelves.
