Scoop the Ice Cream Truck has seen a lot of summers selling his vanilla ice cream cones across the city. But he’s getting old, and the new trucks are getting fancier. Now they have waffle cones, jumbo sundaes, flash frozen ice cream, twenty-seven flavors and six special toppings. Feeling like he’s fallen behind, Scoop decides that it’s time for a redesign.

Quincy wants to love chameleon school, but he's not very good at blending in. No matter how hard he tries to stop it from happening, all of this thoughts keep popping up on his skin!
