From the creator of all of those great “If You Give a…” books we read as a kid, such as If you Give a Mouse a Cookie, a Pig a Pancake, a Moose a Muffin…comes an incredible parody If you Give a Man a Cookie, by Laura Numeroff.
Though the illustrations aren’t reminiscent of the books I remember as a kid, I still got a kick out of this. I even made my husband read it, because it’s pretty spot on, sorry fellas, but this book left me holding my gut, due to the accuracy, and the ending is pure gold.
The story begins with a man, who obviously has some quirks about him, but the story goes on to tell how if you give a man a cookie he will want to do a bunch of other things, like the typical books in this series. All of them are hilarious, but I’m not going to go into detail about each one, because I find it’s so much better if you go in not knowing!
The drawings are gorgeous, the colors really pop out of the page, and make the book even funnier. This is clearly a book for adults, so don’t read it to your kiddos before bed, but go ahead and have a quick laugh with your spouse!
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars, so fun, and so so funny.
