The Case of the Stinky Stench

By Josh Funk and Brendan Kearney



"Uncle," Croissant said, "the fridge is in trouble
A mystery stench turned a whole shelf to rubble
I'm the last hope or the fridge will be lost
Help me or else we'll be cooked, served, and sauced."

There's a stinky stench in the fridge--and our favorite foodie friends must solve a smelly mystery Sir French Toast's nephew, Inspector Croissant, begs him and Lady Pancake for help in finding the source of the foul odor. Could it be the devious Baron Von Waffle? A fetid fish lurking in the bottom of Corn Chowder Lake? Featuring the same delectable rhymes, wordplay, and art that won critical raves for Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast--there's even an actual red herring--this fun follow-up is an absolutely tasty treat for kids

About the Author

Josh Funk is from MA where he spends his days writing computer language and his free time writing picture book rhymes.

Brendan Kearney is an illustrator from the UK. While studying architecture at university, he realized he didn't like rulers. He then discovered that it wasn't essential to use a ruler when illustrating children's books. Now he specializes in illustrating children's books, bringing his own chaotic style and ideas to any project. He is also the illustrator of the first Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast and Bertie Wings It (both Sterling).
