364. “Ice Cream Soup” by Frank Modell


Yesterday, there was a party at Iguana’s, today Marvin and Milton are throwing a birthday party. You would think that it  costs a lot of money, but not when you are as creative as Marvin and Milton. They already had a lot of things at home. They wrote the invitations, blew up balloons, made paper hats… They even baked a cake and made ice-cream… soup. Well, the baking part was not as successful as they had hoped, but who cares about food if they are having a good time! Here come the guests! With quite some surprises…

I think that it was Marvin and Milton’s best party ever. Because they did it themselves. I am not saying don’t throw birthday parties for your children, but  leaving some room for their own contribution is not a bad idea.

Lots of humor in dialogues and cartoons. Dorky, funny characters. A part of a successful Marvin and Milton series, by this great artists and writer, a regular contributor to The New Yorker and “Sesame Street”, among others.
