When our young hero heads to the basement in search of ice cream, he gets the surprise of his life instead! There's a geezer in the freezer, all right―huddled in among the ice cream and leftover turkey. From this simple premise, Randall Wright's rollicking rhyme unfolds a silly story that will tickle funny bones and thaw out even deep-frozen hearts.

Randall Wright lives with his wife and family in Highland, Utah, where he writes books for children about almost anything.
Thor Wickstrom's many illustrated books include School Picture Day and Lester Fizz, Bubble-Gum Artist. He lives in North Adams, MA.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2—In a hilariously rhymed tale that twangs with a country rhythm, a little boy living with his elderly aunt discovers an old man stuck in the downstairs freezer. "I was huntin' for some ice cream/and I knew we had a stash/right betwixt the Christmas turkey/and the frozen corned-beef hash." Startled, he slams the door and hightails it back upstairs. His aunt mentions that she has noticed whispers emanating from the appliance. Finally the boy listens to the man's tale of woe. It seems that when he was young and courting a young lady, he sat in the freezer to contemplate love, the door was shut, and he froze in place. The discovery of the self-defrost switch melts the man out amid a flood of water and love—the young lady was none other than Aunt May. The full-color illustrations, suffused with cool blues and purples, feature wide-eyed characters and have a goofy elasticity. The preposterous tale skates along merrily and will have kids and adults checking carefully the next time they open their own freezers.—Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WI
