A biography of the entrepreneurial, activist duo behind Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, and their rocky road to success

Chunky Monkey. Cherry Garcia. Truffle Kerfuffle.

Legendary ice cream makers Ben & Jerry are behind some of the wackiest, tastiest flavors we know and love. It all began when two groovy guys, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, met when they were twelve years old. Ben liked art, Jerry liked science, and they both loved food . . . especially ice cream!

They started a business together, and with no idea how to actually make ice cream, they made it happen with teamwork, determination, and an appetite for fun and experimentation. When the doors of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade ice cream shop finally opened, crowds flocked. But the pair would still have a rocky road ahead—and ambitious, activist goals to fulfill.

Chock-full of facts and humor, this entertaining biography about two hardworking partners living their Americone Dream gives readers plenty to chew on. Through their inventiveness, passion, and activism, Ben & Jerry dreamed of making the world a better, more delicious place—one scoop at a time.

Lisa Robinson is a child psychiatrist, children’s book author, and ice cream lover (her favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor is Coffee Toffee Bar Crunch). She lives in Massachusetts with her family and three cats, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Paprika—the Spice Cats. Favorite household flavors are Cherry Garcia, Chip Happens, and Justice ReMix'd. Lisa is also the author of several fiction and nonfiction picture books. Stacy Innerst has illustrated many celebrated books for children in a variety of flavors, including The Book Rescuer by Sue Macy, winner of the Sydney Taylor Book Award, Ruth Bader Ginsberg by Jonah Winter, a New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book, and The Music in George’s Head by Suzanne Slade.

Stacy Innerst is an illustrator who’s received many awards for his work. He lives in Pittsburgh.
