Here’s what people are saying about the book:

Verified Purchase
A lovely story about ingenuity, cooperation, friendship and sharing. Katie badly wants to make pancakes but she’s not allowed in the kitchen. She won’t let that stop her though. From her collection of loose parts and other found objects, Katie and her new friend Baxter together build an amazing pancake making machine. It works so well it makes more pancakes than they can possibly eat. What can they do, but share them with neighbours and friends. If your little ones love pancakes, they’ll love this book by Cynthia Mackey.

This is a fun read for kids and features a main character who is very inventive and persistent. The recurring refrain helps younger kids get involved with the reading experience. The book includes a pancake recipe at the back that was quite different to the one my family uses. We tried it out, and it does indeed produce “golden brown, fluffy as a cloud, perfectly round pancakes”.

Ok. Now I want to eat pancakes!!! 🙂 This is a cute story with colorful, eye catching illustrations! Loved it!
