Publisher Comments:

"I'm too fast, you're too slow. Pan, pan, patty-cake pan, I can get away from you, I can!" andlt;BRandgt; The much-loved story of the Runaway Pancake who pops out of the oven and is sure he can escape all who want to eat him, is given a new spin when Marsupial Sue and her friends put on a play version for their neighborhood. This has all of the wit and whimsy of andlt;Iandgt;Marsupial Sueandlt;/Iandgt; and again features lively illustrations by Jack E. Davis. From the friends' preparations behind the scenes to the actors' final bows, readers will be inspired by the production. A CD recording of John Lithgow's live performance of the song "The Runaway Pancake" is also included.

Synopsis:

Marsupial Sue joins her outback friends to put on a play about a Runaway Pancake, who is certain he can outrun everyone. This picture book version of a classic tale includes a CD of Lithgow's live performance of the song "The Runaway Pancake." Full color.

This charming picture book by the team that created City I Love introduces readers to playwriting and performing while sharing a unique and tender story of friendship.

Best friends Kyle and Katie do everything together. When Kyle decides to write a play about a full moon, Katie decides she will write one about a star. But it is always more fun to do things together, so when they decide to combine their two plays to create Full Moon and Star, the outcome is a beautiful collaboration and an over-the-moon testament to their friendship.
