Please keep up with all of my old Graphic Novel Reviews here as I quest for 365 in 365 days! Or search #365GN on Twitter.

Hey, all! I have some cool things coming your way in May, so make sure that you are checking back every day. I appreciate you for reading.

Have you ever been in that moment when you realize that there might only be one drop of maple syrup left in the bottle, and you have to race a good friend to get to the bottle first?!  Me neither, but that’s not the case with Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast…

Title: Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast 

Author(s): Josh Funk and Brendan Kearney

Publisher: Sterling (2015)

Age Rating: All Ages

This book is a madcap race between Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast, through the fridge, to acquire the last drop of Maple syrup.  It is written is super-fun rhyming couplets, and the art of Brendan Kearney on these large pages is cute as heck!

There may be a lesson in this book about not fighting with your friends, or managing your priorities, or being materialistic…but I think this one can just be about some food interacting in a fun, interesting setting: the fridge.  And the book ends with a fold-out poster of the fridge for the little ones to put on their wall; that’s some cool self-promotion if you ask me!

If you hate waffles (spoiler alert), this book is for you!  If you like personified food, this book might also be for you.

Happy reading!
