Synopsis

When Dad's pancakes magically take flight, it is up to his three children to round up their breakfast. Hot on the trail, the magician's kids pursue the pancakes down alleyways, across town, and through the park. Tracking down a bunch of renegade pancakes is tougher than it seems as the battered bunch blend into the background. But nothing will stop our hungry heroes from chasing down a hot meal. Illustrated with Scott Goto's renowned larger-than-life paintings, this tale of adventure is the perfect concoction to entice young readers.
