Synopsis

Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast by Josh Funk

A thoroughly delicious picture book about the funniest food fight ever! Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast have a beautiful friendship-until they discover that there's only one drop of maple syrup left. Off they go, racing past the Orange Juice Fountain, skiing through Sauerkraut Peak, and reeling down the linguini. But who will enjoy the sweet taste of victory? And could working together be better than tearing each other apart? The action-packed rhyme makes for an adrenaline-filled breakfast ...even without a drop of coffee!

Reviews

A tale of to-go food that is good for you! What happens between pancakes and French toast when there is only one drop of syrup left? Readers get a ringside seat when the refrigerator door closes and the food comes to life. Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast take off on an edible version of American Ninja, running and rappelling through all the major food groups, each determined to reach the syrup first. The competition is fierce, as Toast plops into a vat of jam, and Pancake get sucked into chili-based muck. As the two royals skip through the Broccoli Forest and sail across soupy seas, the chilly interior of the refrigerator morphs into a true Hunger Games arena. . . . Kearney's illustrations kick butter, with full command of the story's arc. The bean avalanche is a trippy wonder that will be replayed at many dinner tables. The vibrant colors on simple backgrounds keep the action at the forefront, while the acrobatic rhymes tackle the next hurdle. Though not a nutritional guide, this serving of breakfast foods provides a heaping side of verbs. Teachers and students alike will delight in this food fight. Who will be the winner? Readers will be hungry to find out. Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Josh Funk lives outside Boston with his family. He has a system for eating pancakes so the bottom pancake gets the same amount of syrup as the top. Josh also has two other picture books coming out in 2016: Dear Dragon (Viking/Penguin) and Pirasaurs! (Scholastic). Whilst studying architecture at university, Brendan Kearney realized he didn't like rulers. He then discovered that it wasn't essential to use a ruler when illustrating children's books, and so traded architecture for illustration as quickly as he could. Having now completed his degree, he specialises in children's books, bringing his own chaotic style and ideas to any project. If you can't find him drawing you are likely to find him with a guitar or banjo in hand. Brendan currently lives in the UK.
