Book Trailer Premiere: Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast

Mr. Schu, I am honored and thrilled to officially reveal the book trailer for Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast on your most excellent site. But rather than bore you with anecdotes of how much fun it was to write the song, or prate on about Brendan Kearney's scrumptious illustrations, or promote the fact that this book hits shelves on September 1st, I'd rather speak about something very close to my heart. By that, I mean, my stomach. At this very moment I would really like to fill my stomach with delicious pancakes and tasty french toast. But once again, my children have nearly finished the syrup, leaving only a single drop for me. So why don't you watch this trailer while I make a quick trip to Vermont.

From Sterling Children's: The race is on... Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast are the best of friends until word gets out that there's only one drop of maple syrup left. But only one of them can enjoy the sweet, sweet taste of victory. Is their friendship toast?
