Throughout the book, readers will catch hints of influence from visual mastermind Tim Burton and from literary great Lewis Carroll.
Death or Ice Cream has been well-received by critics. Booklist writes, “A smart and morbidly funny novel ideal
for readers who cut their teeth on Roald Dahl.” Furthermore, Teachwire says, “Readers who are looking for a break from dystopian series will find this a stylish and compelling alternative; a standalone story that’s as thought-provoking as it is chillingly entertaining.” You can read the full review here.
