Hirsch, Odo. Bartlett and the ice voyage

Hirsch, Odo. Bartlett and the ice voyage. Bloomsbury, 2003 [1-58234-797-2]
In this entertaining story, a queen who rules several kingdoms is used to getting anything she wants. She has heard tales of the very perishable melidrop and wants to taste one. Unfortunately it only grows across the sea and it spoils one or two days after it is picked. Many people try to bring her one but no one can until someone suggests the famous explorer Barlett. He finally figures out how to possibly get one to her, but will she be patient enough. This 168 page book is a fun read.
