The Case of the Stinky Stench by Josh Funk, Illustrated by Brendan Kearney is the second book in the Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast series. In this book, we follow the breakfast foods on another adventure.

If you missed my review for the first book, feel free to check it out here: [Children's Book Review] Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast by Josh Funk, Illustrated by Brendan Kearney.

Let's dive in!

The Case of the Stinky Stench (Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast #2) by Josh Funk, Illustrated by Brendan Kearney


Synopsis: 
There’s a stinky stench in the fridge—and our favorite foodie friends must solve a smelly mystery! Sir French Toast’s nephew, Inspector Croissant, begs him and Lady Pancake for help in finding the source of the foul odor. Could it be the devious Baron Von Waffle? A fetid fish lurking in the bottom of Corn Chowder Lake? 

Featuring the same delectable wordplay and delicious art that won critical raves for Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast—there’s even an actual red herring—his fun follow-up is an absolutely tasty treat for kids!


My thoughts:
Another lovely edition to this series! Just like the first, some of the lines didn't really flow well, but overall it was a fun read!

One element that really stood out to me in this one was the play on words! For example the clever bit about the Red Herring or this page below that made me laugh out loud:

The artwork is so much fun! I love that most bits look fun and happy, but that if you look closely, you'll see a bit of a sticky situation occurring. 


I love that each book ends with a fold-out page. This map was especially lovely!


And the author bios were also fun to read and continued to match the humor of the story:

Yet again, I would definitely recommend this book!
