Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast by Josh Funk, Illustrated by Brendan Kearney is an adorable story that kids (or adults that appreciate children's books too, of course) will just love!

I mean, an epic race through the refrigerator between two breakfast foods? Sign me up!

Let's dive in!

Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast by Josh Funk, Illustrated by Brendan Kearney


Synopsis:
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?


My thoughts: 
I had so much fun reading this book! Some of the rhyming was a little off, but I loved the flow and humor overall. This is definitely one that would be fun to read out loud!

I also really enjoyed that the storyline was simply a race between Sir French Toast and Lady Pancake. As the two traveled through the refrigerator to reach the syrup, they encountered so many other foods which were fun to see. I especially loved some of the locations such as the Potato Mash Mountain or the dark and scary vegetable crisper.

And of course, the book ends with a lovely lesson about sharing. I would definitely recommend this book.



Thanks for reading!
