Now that Primrose Squarp’s parents are home after being lost at sea in Everything on a Waffle, what she wants is to have a best friend and do a little matchmaking with her Uncle Jack and Miss Bowzer, the cook who serves “everything on a waffle."
Scrappy, determined and insightful, Primrose finds her best friend in an unlikely foster child, Ked. Their efforts at writing a cookbook add humor to the story including Ked’s tolerance for mini-marshmallows in the oddest of recipes. Primrose doesn’t give up easily on her friend, her matchmaking or on Coal Harbor when logging threatens her beloved island.
