Back of Book:
Lady Pancake is aching; Sir French Toast’s looking pale. Could they be going . . . STALE? Maybe a visit to Professor Biscotti’s lab for her despoiling procedure will help. But instead of beautifying them, Biscotti accidentally transforms the two treats into toddlers! Frightened of the now gargantuan (to them) Baron von Waffle, the mini breakfast foods scamper off on an adventure in the fridge, visiting everywhere from the Bran Canyon to Limes Square. Will Baron von Waffle and Professor Biscotti figure out a way to turn them back into a grown Lady and Sir? Or will they stay short & sweet forever?
I received a copy of this picture book from Sterling Children’s Books in exchange for an honest review.
“Short & Sweet” by Josh Funk is the fourth book in the fabulously fun Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast Series. In this story, the two breakfast foods are beginning to feel stale, so they take a trip to Professor Biscotti’s lab for her despoiling procedure. When the machine malfunctions, Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast find themselves going on a new food-filled adventure. Josh has once again created an engaging and hysterical story about Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast. The story is whimsical, colorful, and filled with more fun food rhymes, artwork, and puns than you can shake a whisk at. “Short & Sweet” is just that: a fun, short story as sweet as its characters. You’ll want to read “Short & Sweet” until you whither to crumbs.
