It might not actually have been my first book, but it's the first one I've published for the world to see. It contains a dreadful double-negative that renders it senseless as well as a mind-boggling spelling error. And don't even get me started on my drawing skills: Fred thought it was a picture of a smirking mother lunging towards her terrified children with a huge knife. Can't he see the pancake (crepe) hurtling up towards the lampshade? It's a frying pan, for goodness sake, not a knife. I have no idea how old I was when I wrote it, but I'd guess I was 10 or less. Happy pancakes every body!

    Sam how odd that, when I was tidying my cookery book shelves earlier today , I should have found a couple of Beccy's school cookery folders~ no pancakes in hers! I am still debating whether or not to make pancakes tonight!

    Very cute book - and well written! I learned something new.

    I don't celebrate Lent - so never had to worry about what I was giving up...but always wanted to go to Mardi Gras.

    Aaaaawww so sweet Sam, I still have my first book too, but it's about my ol' dog, not pancakes.
    We had our crepes on Monday, oh ok.. yes and last night too, they are just too yummy!

    That is utterly adorable, Sam! What a cutie you must have been. Any photos to go along? You know, a headshot of the young author:-)

    Thanks for sharing.

    Oh my lordy that is too damn cute! And yes I knew it was a pancake!

    Happy Fat Tuesday! Not that we give up anything for Lent in our household but Fat Tuesday is a tradition I can seriously get behind....

    Whilst your spelling mistake may be mind-boggling, it is also utterly adorable! :)

    I love you, but I'm with Fred ... at first glance I thought it was a mother with a knife. :)

    well - I've already made the batter, so when it comes to cooking it I am going to get my big chef's night out and see how fred and all his supporters like it then, huh?! HUH!

    I was out for lunch yesterday and missed out on pancakes!
