Henry Edgewood wakes up one morning with an irresistible urge to make pancakes. He does, and from that moment on, his life is not the same.

But one day it all becomes too much for him and Henry has to make a decision with affects Henry, his dog Ezra, Henry's family, and Mr. Jinker in a most hilarious way.
