We eat it in cups or cones. We drink it in sodas or shakes. We like it slathered in hot fudge sauce, wallowing in whipped cream, or balancing atop a slice of pie. We love it all year round.
Ice cream was once so rare and expensive that it was considered the dessert of kings. So, how did this treat for the elite become America's favorite sweet?
This flavorful history of everyone's favorite dessert begins in ancient Greece and travels all the way to ice-cream loving, modern-day America. From fun-loving inventors to far-out flavors, you'll discover hundreds of frosty facts--plus how to make your own ice cream, cones, and fudge sauce!

Lee Wardlaw is the award-winning author of 20 books for young readers, including Bubblemania: The Chewy History of Bubble Gum and 101 Ways to Bug Your Parents. She lives in Santa Barbara, CA.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-7-In this comprehensive book, Wardlaw details the history of this frozen dessert from ancient times to the present, with lively quotes and anecdotes. Readers learn that at first, only royalty could have ice cream, sending slaves to run to ice-covered mountaintops for the fixings; about Marco Polo's questionable contribution to the dessert's history; and about the introduction of the treat to America. Substantial text is given to the various innovations, inventors, and manufacturers covering how they came up with things such as ice-cream freezers, cones, Eskimo pies, and Good Humor deliveries. This book covers more than Vicki Cobb's The Scoop on Ice Cream (Little, Brown, 1985; o.p.) and could easily be used for reports. Recipes for cones, fudge sauce, and, of course, ice cream are included. The format makes for easy reading, with humorous sidebars and fun poems or quotes introducing each short chapter. Black-and-white photographs, reproductions, and occasional line drawings illustrate the volume.
