What is it About?
A little girl named Liza moves to a new town and makes friends along with finding a Magical Ice Cream Cone tree

My Thoughts:

I have seen books like this (example young author Dalton James) with child like art and free flowing story.

While I understand the process of letting the mind flow freely to tell a story in written form this book just does not come together on the page.  The story of Liza Freeze finding friends and making them through her magical ice cream cone tree is confusing.   I just didn’t understand the story completely and at the end felt lost.

I do usually like children art in book that are freely told like this but even the art gets confusing.  I dislike giving low ratings but this book just needed to to be guided more once it got to the page and edited.
