A fairytale for grown-ups.
The Zing family lives in a misguided world of spell books, flying beach umbrellas, and state-of-the-art covert surveillance equipment. There's a slippery Zing, a graceful Zing, and a Zing who runs as fast as a bus. But most significant of all, there's the Zing Family Secret: so immense that it draws the family to the garden shed for meetings every Friday night.
I Have a Bed Made of Buttermilk Pancakes is a grown-up fairytale, and a mystery set in the suburbs. It's about what happens when hope leads to sad and hilarious mistakes and when mistakes lead to hope once again. It's about what happens when you meet a Zing.
The first adult novel from the award-winning author of Feeling Sorry for Celia and Finding Cassie Crazy.
