Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs by Eric Litwin
Eric Litwin, author of several Pete the Cat books, is back with a new character called Groovy Joe. Like Pete the Cat, Groovy Joe loves music. He also loves doggy ice cream (specifically, Haagen Dogs brand) and pens a tune to celebrate his favorite treat: "Love my doggy ice cream! Love my doggy ice cream!"
Throughout the story, Groovy Joe meets several dinosaurs of increasing size. At first, they appear intimidating, until Groovy Joe decides to share his ice cream with them.
Soon, Groovy Joe and all his dinosaur friends are singing the same tune with bellies full of ice cream. But how will the dinosaurs react when all the ice cream is gone?
This fun picture book, featuring illustrations by Tom Lichtenheld, will put a smile on your face. Search the VBPL catalog for Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs.
