"My rating: 5 of 5 stars . . . Mystical and yummy this book has everything a sweet middle grade book should have. I was so entertained and loved it cover to cover. I thought it was original and funny, as well as deep and thought provoking. It was a superb! I highly recommend it!!!"
"Not everything is what it seems in this fun middle grade adventure fantasy! Think 13 Going on 30 mixed with a dash of Hocus Pocus . . . Fair warning: you will want to eat ice cream constantly while reading. Love the cherry skull on the cover giving a hint that some witchy business is afoot!"
"So excited to partner with @tlcbooktours to share Ms. Mulligan and the Enchanted Ice Cream with you. It's a really fun middle grade adventure fantasy . . ."
"Magic, mystery, evil witches, and a crippling curse! This book is for ages 9 and up and will probably require plenty of ice cream to go with!"
"I am super excited to share Ms. Mulligan and the Enchanted Ice Cream with all of you. This fun middle grade read is available at Amazon, Books-A-Million, Barnes and Nobel, and IndieBound."
"How cute is this book? Even the name Ms. Mulligan and the Enchanted Ice Cream is adorable. Many parents are already sending their kiddos back to school. This would make a great book to add to your young readers list!!!"
"Look, I was totally pumped to read this. It seemed like the CUTEST storyline, and thankfully it totally was! I LALALA LOVE that others in the tour have compared it to 13 going on 30, Freaky Friday, 17 again.. Because it was so much that, AND MORE."
"Since this was an upper elementary/middle grades novel, I recruited my 9-year-old daughter to read this with me . . . It was fun, entertaining, and moved pretty quickly; all requirements for a 9-year-old audience . . . I thought it was cute as a button. My daughter thought it was “intriguing and mysterious” (she pulled out the big words just for you guys!) . . . Overall, it was a great story and I enjoyed the chance to connect with my girl over books. We laughed, we almost cried, and then we ate ice cream!"
"I'm giving this book a solid 4 stars but I'm also going to say that I hope this really is the start of a series and I am excited to read the next book which is Ms. Mulligan doing her thing with the Council of Butterflies . . .it's a little Nancy Drew with a little Magic Treehouse, a little Harry Potter lite, a whole lot of fun."
"The story starts off with a bang as Tabby wakes up in the body of an adult. I will pulled into the story right from the get-go . . . As with every great story, there was a perfect combination of protagonists and antagonists . . .Fourth, fifth, and sixth grade readers would be perfect for the book."
"A fun mix of magic, young friends on an adventure, and evil trying to take them down at every turn makes for a great read! . . . After giving it a go, I realized how enchanting and enjoyable this was going to be. Young readers will enjoy this book and find themselves wanting more . . ."
"You know those movies like 13 going on 30, or 17 Again, Freaky Friday and so on? Yeah, those kind of movies where people wake up in someone else's body and then a hilarious plot ensues as they try to figure out what happened and how to get through that day or week or whatever it may be. I absolutely love those kind of movies and this book reminded me of them, big time . . . It also gave me huge Nancy Drew vibes which I love as well, so all around, the minute I opened the book I knew I was going to enjoy it."
"I loved how Ms. Mulligan takes a job as a teacher and the situations this creates! This would be the perfect book for a late elementary to early middle school reader who enjoys a bit of mystery that unravels family secrets... with best friends to help you through."
"For a young reader, this book really had it all. Friendships, a mystery, a secret society, a little bit of creepiness, and humor. The three girls really had a fun relationship, and when Tabby turned into a grown-up, the friendship continued . . . overall, the story was cute and entertaining. Age-wise, I think ages 9-12 is the right recommendation!"
"Think the movie BIG with a witchy twist. Hey, it's just a bunch of hocus pocus, right? . . . In the end, we discover that while wishes are mighty and words hold much power, it's the intent that really counts...for better or worse."
"I think you would like this book if you like magical books and books with a lot of situations going on at once. I also like that if magic like that existed, the author made it sound realistic."
