About the Book
Yee-haw! It's breakfast time! It's a laugh on every page when two cowboys try to make breakfast and instead make a buttermilk biscuit that comes alive! The buttermilk biscuit boy is sure he can outrun the cowpokes and takes off like a shot. They are joined by hungry pigs, cows, ponies, and a wily coyote as they pursue the smug pastry through pastures far and wide. When they come to a wide canal, it looks like the buttermilk biscuit boy might be stuck with no way out. Will he escape the famished, grumpy group? Or will his plans melt like hot butter on a crumbly biscuit? This spunky country twist on the classic tale and bright, playful illustrations will delight readers of all ages.

My Take on the Book
If you are familiar with the folktale about the runaway gingerbread man, this story will seem familiar to you. However , the story has an interesting twist at the end which is quite funny.

So two cowboys make the biscuit for breakfast and it comes to life and runs away. In pursuit are the cowboys and various farm animals. You will definitely chuckle at the illustrations which bring to life the emotions of all who are running after this biscuit.

So go along on the adventure with Biscuit Boy and make sure you don't spoil the ending by peeking before you read the entire story.
