The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning Bob Graham celebrates freedom and the wonders of chance in this beautiful and almost wordless picture book. An emblem of freedom, a tiny and curious sparrow makes its long journey across the world. Through glorious illustrations the sparrow travels by road across India and then on the long, long boat journey south over the wide expanses of the ocean. Landfall in a big city leads the sparrow to Edie Irvine, a little and curious baby in a buggy who as a result of the meeting and totally by chance, gets his first taste of vanilla ice-cream! A beautiful and thought-provoking book.

Vanilla Ice Cream by Bob Graham
A wild, young sparrow rises from the dust outside an Indian food stall surrounded by swaying palms. The sparrow flies off just where he pleases, following the food...He journeys south through the lush rice paddies and across the rough sea and all the way into a bright new day where, just for a moment, the wild sparrow's world collides with little Edie's. So it is that little Edie discovers the taste of vanilla ice cream in the most curious way!
This is the story of a traveller free to go where he pleases, of a journey, and of how life can take wild and curious paths.
“Graham’s books bubble with good humour and the knowledge that there are many ways
of looking at the world provided you keep an open mind.” The Guardian
