Vanilla Bean

Bean is one picky pup! When it comes to food, he doesn't like much. Just vanilla ice cream. Not spaghetti, not applesauce, not even grilled cheese. Just vanilla ice cream. Plain vanilla. Very, very plain vanilla. While Miss Sundae tries to convince Bean to try many of her funny ice cream flavors, she only hears one big NOPE in return. Until one day, there's a big sprinkle accident at the ice cream shop! And guess what? Bean's ice cream is actually pretty good all covered in sprinkles! Maybe, just maybe, he'll try a strawberry tomorrow! A sweet and silly story about trying new things.

“Will resonate with finicky kids and their very particular taste buds.” ― Kirkus Reviews
