Midwest Book Review, 01/17/2024

Mix A Pancake by Christina Rossetti & illustrated by Monique Felix. Mix A Pancake was written by Christina Rossetti in 1893 and has been given new life by the very talented Monique Felix. With fourteen pages of enthusiastic-looking kittens, Mix A Pancake humorously illustrates all of the potential outcomes when it comes to letting little ones become Chef de Cuisine without any supervision. Like all board books published by The Creative Company, I could read this one over and over again. Thankfully, the kitten chaos and pancake mess stays in the book, which for parents, is the best part.

–Kelsie Marie Paff, Where the Board Books Are, 01/17/2024

The cover of this board book features a cute kitten wearing a chef's hat and a white jacket holding a recipe for pancakes. The first spread shows this kitten leading a parade of kittens carrying the necessary ingredients and utensils. From there on chaos reigns. Eggs break on the floor, milk spills from the table; flour dusts the room. Mice scamper in, scaring the kittens who jump on tables and chairs. The chef kitten pours batter in a pan on the stove while the other kittens cause havoc in the kitchen. Then pancakes are flying around as the chef flips them from the pan and the other kittens try to catch them. At this point, an adult cat appears in the doorway and observes the hectic scene. The illustrations cover the pages in exuberant activity. The kittens are dressed in aprons or trousers. The adult cat wears a sleeveless dress, high heel shoes, and pearls.

Mix a Pancake, the latest book illustrated by Monique Felix for Creative Editions, an imprint of The Creative Company, is a kitten-filled visual feast akin to the Little Golden Books that have lined children’s bookshelves since 1942. This comes as no surprise, given that The Creative Company, itself, was founded just 10 years earlier, in 1932. The text was written by the famed Victorian poet Christina Rossetti in 1893 and totals only six simple lines. But each word is brought to life by Monique Felix’s cuddly and humorous illustrations, which depict kittens of nearly every color as they attempt to make themselves a pancake breakfast while their mother is away. Children, young and old, who like kittens and cats will enjoy the bodily and facial expressions of the mischievous feline characters as they turn their workplace from a kitchen to a playground, complete with a tablecloth slide and a pitching mound for pancake throwing.The book is composed of 14 seven-by-seven-inch heavy cardboard pages, the perfect size and sturdiness for toddler hands to flip through again and again, which they will want to do merely to gaze at the adorable antics of the kittens inside. The front cover portrays a standard pancake recipe, the ingredients of which would perfectly accompany the book when given as a gift— baby’s first bake, perhaps? Just be prepared to make a mess!
