Powell's Books Presents Kids' Storytime With Josh Funk
Today, author Josh Funk joins us to read from his new picture book, SHORT AND SWEET (Sterling), illustrated by Brendan Kearney. Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast are back with a twist: they’ve been transformed into small children. Now it’s a race against the clock to turn our favorite duo into grown-ups again! 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 and sweet forever?
