Short & Sweet: The Newest Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast Is Almost Here!

Dear friends,

​I love independent bookstores. So for the release of Short & Sweet, I’m teaming up with them to give YOU exclusive swag – four collectors’ cards AND an autographed bookplate. All you have to do is preorder your copy from any of the stores listed here.

​What’s Short & Sweet about? It’s the 4th adventure of Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast, in which Pancake and Toast fear they’re going stale, visit Professor Biscotti whose faulty gadget transforms them into toddlers, which sends them on an adventure in the refrigerator.

I’ve partnered with over 75 indie bookstores across the U.S. – so reach out to your nearest one and preorder today – and pick up your swag along with the book when it releases in September!

So find your favorite bookstore from the list below and preorder Short & Sweet – bon appétit!

​Your pal,
Josh

​P.S. Feel free to order more books from your indie bookshop while you’re at it.
