Praise

★ ”A coolly fascinating, nostalgic glimpse into life as it was over a century ago. . . Pringle’s writing is as clear and sharp as well-hewn blocks of ice, and the book is a visually refreshing treat. . . fast-paced, absorbing historical reading. Very well-documented, even including links to some short Edison films. Readers will regard their refrigerators and freezers in a whole new, respectful light.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Tells a kid-friendly slice of social and technological history. Aided by an impressive collection of archival photos and advertisements, Pringle has a good eye for side stories…”—USA Today

“Pleasingly designed with short blocks of crisp text and ample illustrations consisting of archival photographs, drawings, and images of the ice cards customers used to communicate their needs to the deliverymen. Readers will be enticed.”—Booklist
