KIRKUS REVIEW

“Why get up, for goodness’ sake? / Wait . . . that smell . . . could it be? Pancakes!” With plates, pan, glasses, and tableware bouncing about a gloriously spattered kitchen, three children—themselves gloriously spattered—chow down on stacks of pancakes in this rhymed breakfast bourrée. No parents are in sight, but big sister knows just what to do: “A pancake here, a pancake there. / One in the pan, and three in the air,” until it’s finally time to clean up, and troop outside for a “pancake cheer!” Gammell’s madcap brushwork matches the exuberance of both the young diners’ style of eating, and the rhythm of the brief text. Weston caps her cheery debut with a recipe for her grandmother’s buttermilk pancakes. Yum. (Picture book. 5-7)
