I'm very pleased to announce that the book is out. Because it's been published by Barnes and Noble you can only get it from them. That's bad for me because you can only get it there, but good for you because it means they're less expensive than if they were available everywhere. They've cut out the "middle man." It comes with the bottle and step by step instructions on how to get your pancake "game" on! The hole in the top of the bottle is a little small. Cut a little off with a pair of scissors. Be careful. It's hard to put it back on. Take a look!
