The pictures are brilliant, sprinkled with cute, poignant speech bubbles from the characters. The layout of Ice Boy’s different manifestations is very visually appealing. This story will provoke a lot of different emotions … amusement, sentimentality, anxiety, confusion, but ultimately, relief.

Stein’s offbeat, animated story makes lively work of the water cycle with cartoonish, doodlelike illustrations of the adventurous ice cube set against aqueous backgrounds, and speech balloons from Ice Boy and his friends add humorous running commentary. A comical caper with a stealthy dose of basic science concepts.
Funny and entertaining, this book starring an independent ice cube is a truly enjoyable tour through the water cycle that offers insights into the dynamics of life in the freezer.
