S: Yay! An adorable book about cupcakes! Growing up, I absolutely loved If You Give a Mouse a Cookie!
H: This was my first time reading an "If You Give..." book. At first I didn't understand where the transitions were going, but after reading the ending, I got the concept of the book's writing style.
S: One of my favourite details of the illustrations are spotting the Mouse from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. He makes these cute cameo appearances on certain pages of the book! My mom gave me Mouse Cookies last year and it came with the Mouse cookie-cutter, pictured below.
H: I have to agree that the illustrations are kind of cute. My favourite would have to be the karate class illustration.
S: Yes, the expressions of the Cat throughout the whole book were very well done! I also read the book to my 5 years old cousin and he loved it. The book is aimed for ages 3-7, so it was perfect. He especially loved the page at the museum and was able to name all of the dinosaurs. Right after reading him the story, he asked me for a cupcake. If you give a 5 years old a cupcake...
H: Overall, I give it a 3.5/5 cuteness.
S: I give it 4/5 sprinkles.
