If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
One thing leads to lots of surprising others, in this sweetly told and adorably illustrated classic.
If a hungry little mouse shows up on your doorstep, you might want to give him a cookie.
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.
