Book A Day: If You Give a Man a Cookie

For the month of December, we will be featuring (at least) a book a day leading up to Christmas.  Start a Christmas tradition of reading a new book each day this month until Christmas Eve.  You can get books from the library or pick up new ones to add to your home library while you are out shopping for the holidays.  Our books will range from board books for infants and toddlers, to chapter books for teens, to craft books for the holidays to books for adults.  Let us know if you pick up one either at a bookstore or the library and what you think about it.

We’ve been focusing on books for the kids this holiday season, so today, we are breaking from tradition and bringing you a book for the adults.  A great gift for mom, dad, brother, sister, co-worker – really, anyone can relate to this hilarious parody!  This book would make a fun, less serious gift for the woman who has it all.

After 30 years of giving pancakes to pigs and muffins to moose, bestselling author Laura Numeroff faces her toughest customer yet: man, whose increasingly needy journey from cookie to couch wreaks havoc on his exasperated wife. Numeroff beats other parodies to the punch by putting a humorous and relatable spin on her own classic work, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. A perfect gift for grown-up fans of Numeroff’s books!

If you give a man a cookie…he’s going to want milk to go with it…God forbid he should get it himself.

If You Give a Man a Cookie is a woman’s commentary about her helpless man and the chain of events that leads him on a journey from the bed to the bathroom to the couch and back to bed at nightfall.
