The Pancake Tiger

Kiki by Atelier Björkåsa

Keep an eye on those pancakes, I say
Behind the raspberry bushes
Remember how things went
Last time with the cinnamon buns?

Beware of that bear! Kiki replies
He didn’t leave anything but a lot of crumbs
T’was a hairbreadth escape for me

I know, I say, and pick three raspberries
Hence, keep an eye on those pancakes
Remember how things went
With our chocolate cake picnic?

That fox, oh my! Kiki replies
He was so hungry, that by a whisker
He would have eaten me up

I know, I say, and pick three raspberries
Hence, keep an eye on those pancakes
Remember how things went
With the four cheese sandwiches?

That ravenous wolf, Kiki replies
Don’t remind me of him
The only thing he spared was a napkin

I know, I say, and pick three raspberries
Hence, keep an eye on those pancakes
Remember how things went
With the cardamom cookies?

But Kiki doesn’ answer this time
And from behind the raspberry bushes
I can hear a long snore

Oh no!!!

Keep an eye on those pancakes
Is what I asked you to do, I say
Me picking raspberries, you keeping guard
And only one pancake left!

I must have passed out, Kiki says
When the hungry tiger appeared
And ate all those pancakes, except one

A tiger, are you sure? I ask, doubtingly

A tiger for sure, Kiki replies
T’was a quite well-behaved chap though
He even knew how to use fork and knive

A tiger, indeed… I say
And then we share the raspberries
Six for Kiki, six for me

    Love your stories and your trendy doll clothes. The fabrics you find are simply just perfect as well as your patterns and sewing. All the stories you have written should be incorporated into a book along with the illustrations. Children would love listening to them and reading them. Of course the props to go along with them are unreal.

    I do think that might take the fun out of writing more stories. The creativity is the fun in doing it.
    But your dolls and stories are very enjoyable.

  2. I agree with Cecilia above. I so wish you would put together a book for children with all the Kiki adventures! I have been following your blog, this one and your old one, from the very beginning, and loved Kiki from the very start. She is such a witty, special little person and even though my children are adults now, I’d love to buy your books if you’d ever decide to publish one.
