“Josh Funk pours on the adorable once again as he sets his lovable breakfast duo off on another tasty adventure. Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast realize they’re going stale and seek the help of Professor Biscotti to rejuvenate them, but something goes awry. Baron von Waffle and tons of enjoyable puns return, as do illustrator Brendan Kearney’s delectably delightful foodscapes. Limes Square made me giggle with glee. This too-short picture book is certainly sweet enough for the little ones, and well worth the carbs for all readers.”
— Ernio Hernandez, River Bend Bookshop, Glastonbury, CT

About the Author
Josh Funk lives outside Boston with his family. He has a system for eating pancakes so the bottom pancake gets the same amount of syrup as the top. Josh also has two other picture books coming out in 2016: Dear Dragon (Viking/Penguin) and Pirasaurs! (Scholastic). Whilst studying architecture at university, Brendan Kearney realized he didn't like rulers. He then discovered that it wasn't essential to use a ruler when illustrating children's books, and so traded architecture for illustration as quickly as he could. Having now completed his degree, he specializes in children's books, bringing his own chaotic style and ideas to any project. If you can't find him drawing you are likely to find him with a guitar or banjo in hand. Brendan currently lives in the UK.
