Synopsis

It starts with a grumbling tummy.

And a dream of something yummy.

What is it time for?

Pancakes!

Tyler and his dog, Tofu, are hungry for blueberry pancakes.

They are so good to eat—all fluffy and juicy and hot. But the real fun is making them.

First you need a chicken, a cow, a few blueberry bushes, some special trees, and lots of mixing, flipping, and topping.

Chickens? Trees? We’re still talking pancakes, right?

Yes we are, and Tyler and Tofu find out just how it’s done, all before sitting down for the best breakfast ever!

Do you think pancakes come from a box? Not really! So let Food Network star Tyler Florence and Craig Frazier take you on an adventure from farm to mouth. You’ll learn how we get the best ingredients and discover that the most important one of all comes from the heart.

Weak attempts at humor (usually involving Tyler’s dog) fall flat; a final spread offers a pancake recipe and additional facts about the various ingredients.

The only thing that may be an issue with a child that is getting a little older is that Tyler leaves the home to go to the market while his parents are sleeping, gets all of the items with no mention of money, and does all of the cooking himself.

By far, the most interesting part of this book is where food comes from (the grocer's explanations and the last "do you know?" page).
