When a boy shares his cookie with a hungry mouse, it is the beginning of a chain of events that keeps the boy busy all day long. After all, if you give a mouse a cookie, he's bound to ask for a glass of milk, for which he'll certainly need a straw—not to mention a napkin, and a mirror to check for a milk mustache, which will only lead to him noticing that he needs a haircut. All around the house, this mouse and boy find one fun thing to do after another, leading all the way back to one more cookie.

Young readers will instantly recognize—and enjoy—the everyday adventures the book details.

About this Series

What happens when a kid meets a friendly animal who's also a bit demanding? Kid and critter travel far and wide as each idea prompts a bigger and bolder request.

A pig asking a girl for a pancake is reasonable enough, but then off they go from the kitchen to the bathtub to the backyard! A cupcake for a cat seems like no big deal, until it leads to a beachside jaunt. But no matter how big of an adventure each duo has, they always manage to end up exactly where they started!

With delightfully detailed illustrations that bring joy to the simply worded text, this series of circular tales are excellent choices for read-alouds, and also for discussing cause and effect. And as each animal's demands become sillier and more exhausting, children will enjoy each increasingly hilarious situation while adults will delight in watching the kids in the stories end up in the role of "grown-up."
