If you were to enter the mind of a super busy kid with a fun nature and a love for all critters big and small, and then send her off for a week long holiday, you may come up with something like this.  Chris McKimmie did.  It is fun and quirky, unique and could well be his daughters homework. 😛

Good Morning Mr. Pancakes is touchable and not in the has fluffy and scratchy attachments way, I mean it is real and attainable.  It can be held with both hands and fully appreciated.  A child could be inspired by the childishness of its art and the fun randomness in the story.

I am so excited about my holiday I think my head might fall off.

I read this book to my daughter and she really enjoyed it.  However I enjoyed it too, it was like lifting the lid just a little and having a peek from a child’s perspective. Though I am not entirely sure what she was referring to all the time, secret children’s code I think, it was still fabulous and I can only imagine with my limited adults ability where the creative thoughts came from.

Chris McKimmie has been a two-time CBCA shortlister.  The creator of Brian Banana Duck Sunshine Yellow, Maisie Moo and Invisible Lucy, Special Kev and Two Peas in a Pod.
