About this item

Giving a mouse a cookie might seem like a nice thing to do, but in this book, it is only the first in a series of interconnected and ever-increasing requests from the mouse. For example, giving a mouse a cookie will lead him to ask for a glass of milk, which will then cause him to request a straw, and so on. Young readers will be amazed to see how giving a tiny mouse a small snack can actually result in having the mouse give himself a haircut, sweep and mop the house, and draw himself a picture. Brightly colored illustrations accompany the text. This book is the first in a series that also includes IF YOU TAKE A MOUSE TO SCHOOL, IF YOU GIVE A PIG A PANCAKE, and IF YOU GIVE A MOOSE A MUFFIN.

If a hungry little traveler shows up at your house, you might want to give him a cookie. If you give him a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of milk. He'll want to look in a mirror to make sure he doesn't have a milk mustache, and then he'll ask for a pair of scissors to give himself a trim....

The consequences of giving a cookie to this energetic mouse run the young host ragged, but young readers will come away smiling at the antics that tumble like dominoes through the pages of this delightful picture book.

Loved the book 25 years ago for my children. Buying it now for my grandchildren. I frequently say "well you know what happens when you give a mouse a cookie".... now my family remembers what that means. It applies to so many situations.
