My Book Beginnings is taken from WHAT LIES BELOW by Barbara Taylor Sissel:


"Zoe Halstead wouldn't go missing until Thursday, the day after Gilly made her a breakfast pancake in the shape of an elephant's head.  Zoe ate the ears first, then worked her way up the long trunk, but when she got to the eyes--chocolate chip--dotted mini marshmallows--she balked.

  3. Shaped animal pancakes are always better than regular ones. :)
