I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the THE GREAT CAPER CAPER by Josh Funk & Brendan Kearney Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!
In the fifth adventure of the Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast series, our delectable rhyming friends find their home covered in darkness and embark on a Las Veggies heist—perfect for fans of The Food Group series.
When Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast awake one morning to near-darkness, they are aghast. Who would steal the fridge light? And what if the fridge is—gasp—dark all the time? Not to worry. Our trusty heroes are on the case. Will they be able to bring the fridge back to its bright self, or will they have to live in semi-darkness…forever?
Praise for the Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast Series:

Don’t miss the other books in the series:

The Case of the Stinky Stench
Short & Sweet
The Great Caper Caper by Josh Funk was a humorous children’s mystery/picture book.
This is actually book five (5) in the Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast series, but it is not necessary to read the others beforehand.
Full of whimsical characters – the illustrator does an amazing job of capturing each ones personality and feelings. They are just super cute and fun. The little details are really on point; Lady Pancakes whipped cream hair and Miss Brie’s grape do are a couple of my favorites.
The writing style/rhyming isn’t forced at all and flows well. I really enjoyed the puns and the way certain words were used.
The light hearted mystery is something many children can connect with. The Great Caper Caper is a great book about friendship and doing what is right, however the theme is bit advanced for some readers, as they may not connect the dots right away without some extra patience and explanation.
This would make a great book for lower elementary students to introduce different food groups; from vegetables to cheese, not too many foods are left out. Plus, the not so well-known foods like passion fruit, tofu, and capers – this book could encourage trying new foods.
