The Pancake That Ran Away by Loek Koopmans


The Pancake That Ran Away by Loek Koopmans

Three old ladies are looking forward to eating the delicious fat pancake they've just made. But the pancake has other ideas! It jumps out of the pan, rolls out the door and into the woods as fast as it can go, calling, You can't catch me! All the farmyard animals follow but can anyone catch the mischievous pancake?


'A beautiful-looking retelling.'
