The Case of the Stinky Stench

A fetid fish lurking in the bottom of Corn Chowder Lake?

Featuring the same delectable rhymes, wordplay, and art that won critical raves for Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast (Sterling, 2015), this fun follow-up is a tasty treat for kids and adults! Check out the book trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tX6gZWkgLY

“Inspector Croissant not only solves the mystery, but does a good deed, demonstrating compassion to his fellow foodstuff. Crisp writing, engaging illustrations, and sweets—this is a recipe worth keeping.” —Kirkus

Caring For Your Lion

What happens when you expect an itty-bitty kitty . . . but get a lion instead?

Should this happen to you, you’ll need CARING FOR YOUR LION by Tammi Sauer! It includes instructions like – try very hard NOT to look like a zebra. Or a gazelle. And give your lion PLENTY of space to play. Also, your lion loves pizza, so order plenty. Having a lion is a lot of work – is there any way the king of the jungle could actually be a child’s purr-fect pet?

“Allow plenty of time to giggle over the details.” – Kirkus
