The Ice Cream Kid: Brain Freeze! by Todd Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Perfect read for the younger middle grade (or upper elementary) crowd: an average kid discovers that by eating ice cream, his super powers emerge. Even better, he's from a family of super heroes (grandpa is one, but it's skipped a generation). Irwin's biggest problem is that his sidekick is a sarcastic pidgeon, Bert - not exactly the image he wants. But there's trouble in town and only the Ice Cream Kid, with a steady supply of drumsticks, ice cream sandwiches and fudgesicles, can stop Sweaty Cracker.
