“A tale of ‘to-go’ food that is good for you! What happens between pancakes and French toast when there is only one drop of syrup left? Readers get a ringside seat when the refrigerator door closes and the food comes to life. Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast take off on an edible version of American Ninja, running and rappelling through all the major food groups, each determined to reach the syrup first. The competition is fierce, as Toast plops into a vat of jam, and Pancake get sucked into chili-based muck. As the two royals skip through the Broccoli Forest and sail across soupy seas, the chilly interior of the refrigerator morphs into a true Hunger Games arena. . . . Kearney's illustrations kick butter, with full command of the story's arc. The bean avalanche is a trippy wonder that will be replayed at many dinner tables. The vibrant colors on simple backgrounds keep the action at the forefront, while the acrobatic rhymes tackle the next hurdle. Though not a nutritional guide, this serving of breakfast foods provides a heaping side of verbs. Teachers and students alike will delight in this food fight. Who will be the winner? Readers will be hungry to find out.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Newcomer Funk’s rhymes never skip a beat (though, at one point, Lady Pancake does skip over two beets), and he delights in transforming the fridge and its contents into an arena filled with perils . . . Kearney (Flying Machines) is equally inspired, personifying nearly every foodstuff with dot eyes and a U-shaped smile, while also giving the competitors a playfully regal air, even as they become stained with jelly and chili.” —Publishers Weekly

The story revolves around two "leftover friends" in a epic race through the refrigerator to get the last drop of syrup.
If I had to mention a weakness (*spoiler alert*) it's that at the end, Toast and Pancake eat the Butter, who is also "alive" in the refrigerator. Butter doesn't seem too upset, as he is smiling, and my son has never considered this point (and I don't mention it). That being said, I still like this book.
The book is an excellent read aloud for parents, librarians, and teachers. I recommend this book to anyone who wonders how leftovers in the refrigerator would interact.
