One of our favorite authors is Josh Funk – not only are his books fantastic but so is his name!  We initially came across his book Dear Dragon and had to see what else he had out there.  Today we present Pirasaurs and Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast.

Pirasaurs by Josh Funk


We’re Pirasaurs! We’re Pirasaurs!
We rule the open seas!
We’ll cannon-blast you to the past!
We do just what we please!

Meet the Pirasaurs, a ragtag team of seasoned pirate dinosaurs looking for adventure and treasure! There’s fearsome Captain Rex, golden-toothed Velocimate, one-eyed Bronto Beard, and more fearsome, buccaneering beasts….as well as one new recruit who may be small, but who’s eager to prove he can learn the ropes and find his place on the team.

But when a trap is set upon the Pirasaurs while looking for buried treasure, it’s up to the littlest recruit to show the team that there’s more to a Pirasaur than meets the eye patch!

Why we LOVE this book:

  • It reads like a song
  • Adorable characters and illustrations
  • Just the right amount of swashbuckling mixed with prehistoric dinos
  • Fun to read one-on-one or to a small group

Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast by Josh Funk

Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast

A thoroughly delicious picture book about the funniest “food fight” ever! Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast have a beautiful friendship—until they discover that there’s ONLY ONE DROP of maple syrup left. Off they go, racing past the Orange Juice Fountain, skiing through Sauerkraut Peak, and reeling down the linguini. But who will enjoy the sweet taste of victory? And could working together be better than tearing each other apart? The action-packed rhyme makes for an adrenaline-filled breakfast . . . even without a drop of coffee!

Why we LOVE this book:

  • Adorable art and characters
  • Humorous story
  • Clever Rhymes
  • Perfect for boys and girls
  • Great for one-on-one or for a small group
