Review quote

"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 Reviews Praise for LADY PANCAKE & SIR FRENCH TOAST:
"Kearney's illustrations kick butter, with full command of the story's arc. The bean avalanche is a trippy wonder that will be replayed at many dinner tables. The vibrant colors on simple backgrounds keep the action at the forefront, while the acrobatic rhymes tackle the next hurdle. . . . Teachers and students alike will delight in this food fight. Who will be the winner? Readers will be hungry to find out." --Kirkus Reviews "Inspector Croissant's first case reeks of mystery, adventure, and nefarious plans. A savory sequel for any reader with an appetite for sleuthing!" -Matthew Winner, co-founder of All the Wonders
