When the world's most evil, sinister, and wicked ice cream truck driver races past the children of Sweet Street, Big Billy marshals their forces to confront the villain. Armed with bikes, bravery, and a cunning plan, the children turn the wheels on the driver, creating delicious havoc. Sewer covers flip open, trees become launching pads, and military aircraft deploy parachuting children to stop the spiteful ice cream truck driver. The confrontation escalates until a dripping pile of ice cream and an unexpected act of kindness changes everything. Written with humor and illustrated with brilliant color, Big Billy is a story about the power of positive choices. Early readerages 5-8.
