Book Review: Bartlett and the Incredible Ice Voyage by Odo Hirsch - Reviewed by E.L.L.I.E (14 Jun 2011)
A young queen has practically everything she has ever wanted. Raspberries, blueberries, pineapples, rare fruits, rhinoceros' and even giraffes but being the stereotypical queen she is, she demands more and more everyday. One day, she discovers a fruit she does not have and is terribly sad about it so she demands that she must have it. The melidrop must be retrieved for her so she calls upon a young explorer Bartlett and his friend Jacques accompanied by Gozo to get her one of these fruits. The problem is, the melidrop goes rotten after one day. How will Bartlett give the queen the melidrop and will the queen be patient enough to wait for several months?
