He knows exactly how he's going to get the trophy, but it's going to be dangerous. It'll take sacrifice. He might even lose his pals along the way...

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.

Dan & Jason go back. Waaaaay back. They have directed award-winning commercials, created hit cartoon shows, and even sold a feature-film concept, but nothing has prepared them for this... the pinnacle of their storied career: publishing the hilarious and heartwarming comic tales of Blue, Barry & Pancakes?! Dan & Jason have packed it with everything they know about drawing, writing, and the enduring power of friendship. Please enjoy their comic book debut! They make everything together. They think it, draw it, write it, mix it, bake it, and serve it together. Teamwork!
