Limpet’s family have just moved to the seaside town of Splottpool. His Mum wants to open an ice-cream shop and fill it with her creative new flavours (carrot and garlic, chicken and cheese, and not forgetting the tuna and mushroom!) – but Limpet is not too sure… He likes a nice, safe life. His favourite ice-cream flavour is vanilla. But when wicked Mr Fluffy arrives with his Mega Emporium of Amazing and Spectacular Ice Creams, Limpet knows he’s got to fight back. Together with his sister, new best friend and pet chicken, Limpet sets out to find the magic ingredients which could solve all his worries, if only he can get the recipe just right…
