Laura Joffe Numeroff has delighted young children with her If You Give A series since 1985. It began with IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE... about a little traveler who drops in for a snack and the mayhem that results when he asks for much more than you expect. This was followed by a moose that loves muffins, a pig that loves pancakes and even more about the beloved little mouse. These delightful tales have simple storylines and charming illustrations that will have parents and children giggling together from beginning to end.
