What more can one say about a perky, demanding mouse dressed in blue jean coveralls that has not already been said? After all, he has been around for twenty-five years! He has delighted a whole generation of children with the demands he makes on a young boy who is also clad in blue jeans and red high-top sneakers. The story opens as the unnamed boy offers a mouse a cookie. He then wants a glass of milk (with a straw) to go with the cookie. The mouse continues with his demands. These include a napkin, nail scissors and a broom that he uses to sweep the entire house. Now the mouse is so weary, he needs a place to take a nap and a story (with pictures). This leads to a request for paper and crayons so he may draw his own picture, which must then be hung on the refrigerator. Now the mouse is thirsty again and wants a glass of milk and, of course, another cookie. The final page shows the exhausted boy sound asleep amid the chaos of the day's activities as the mouse contentedly munches on a chocolate chip cookie. Youngsters will delight in sharing this story at story time or reading it independently and pouring over the charming pictures to discover little extras, such as the mouse undressing in preparation for his nap. Another bonus is a game at the end of the book entitled The Great Cookie Chase. If this title is not in the collection, it definitely belongs there, along with all the other volumes in the "If You Give...book" series. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
