Ode to Icky
by Maranda Russell
review by Donna and Lucas
(Lucas laughed throughout the entire book)
A cute and imaginative tale by the very talented Ms. Maranda Russell. The story is about a young girl, named Candy, with a very lazy smelly cat, named Icky. Candy has an imaginative money making scheme and uses Icky's awful smelling fur to create a 'super French perfume. Ode De Iche". Unfortunately, to bottle this stuff she empties out her mothers bottles of REAL French perfume. Well, in addition to the entire female population of the school smelling like Icky, Candy has to face her mother with the truth of her actions. Imagine having an expensive bottle of perfume from France, imagine having your kid empty it out and use the bottle. What would you do? This is a story about leaning a lesson. A great story for parents to read to their children. The kids will learn, but laugh while learning.
