"Uncle," Croissant said, "the fridge is in trouble! A mystery stench turned a whole shelf to rubble! I'm the last hope or the fridge will be lost! Help me or else we'll be cooked, served, and sauced."
There's a stinky stench in the fridge--and our favorite foodie friends must solve a smelly mystery! Sir French Toast's nephew, Inspector Croissant, begs him and Lady Pancake for help in finding the source of the foul odor. Could it be the devious Baron Von Waffle? 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--there's even an actual red herring--this fun follow-up is an absolutely tasty treat for kids!

With a "horrible stench" assailing the fridge, the stars of Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast attempt to locate its source, assisting an eager sleuth, Inspector Croissant. Funk crafts his rhymes with care, and readers will giggle their way through this refrigerated fantasyland: "They started their search crossing Salsa Ravine, / And lumbered through smog around Mount Everbean." Kearney's candy-colored cartoons are attuned to the book's brand of culinary comedy, conjuring marshmallow vistas, a sludgy lake of chowder, and even a literal red herring on the way to a happy ending that doesn't even require baking soda to solve. Ages 5-8. Author's agent: Kathleen Rushall, Andrea Brown Literary. Illustrator's agent: Hannah Whitty, Plum Pudding Illustration. (May)Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, LLC Used with permission.
