What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

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.

It’s a classic for a reason, guys. I think this book hits all the right notes—colorful, detailed, fun illustrations; a silly story that is easy for even toddlers to follow; brief, succinct text. All in all, it’s just a lot of fun, and it appeals to a wide variety of ages.
