Overview

If you give a cat a cupcake, he'll ask for some sprinkles to go with it. When you give him the sprinkles, he might spill some on the floor. Cleaning up will make him hot, so you'll give him a bathing suit . . . and that's just the beginning!

The lovable cat who first appeared in If You Give a Pig a Party now has his very own book! Written in the tradition of the bestselling If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond's newest story will show everyone that Cat is where it's at!

Editorial Reviews

The pair that educated us with If You Give a Pig a Party and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie return with another four-legged conundrum. Everybody knows that if you give a cat a cupcake, he'll ask you for sprinkles to top it…and when you give a cat some sprinkles, we all know what happens: He spills them…. And, needless to say, this entertaining story goes on from there.

If you have read the other books in the series, you know how cute they are. My kids loved this book! They saw it in the store and went crazy. I like these little books so I had to get it for them. I got it along with three other books: Bats at the Library; Runny Babbit; and Pumpkin Guts, Tater Eyes, and Other Tasty Treats.

This series is really imaginative and very well received by all the children I know. While 'If You Give A Mouse A Cookie' is still my favorite, this latest addition is a close second. I applaud the longevity of the series and the freshness that is still there today for all these books.

Laura Numeroff has created the most fun predictable books for young readers. Her 1st, If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, is a classic!

I purchased this book for my grandson for Christmas. I is a beginner reader and this is a very good book for him to read on his own.

I think this book is fun to read to your children. It also teaches a great lesson and leads easily into discussion about boundaries.

The 'if you give' book series is really nice. I have two two and a half year olds. We have five of the books from this series and my two love all of them. The pictures are bright and colorful but relatively simple. The story is cute and they look forward to each page to see what will happen even though we've read these a million times and they know all the endings. Sometimes series can lack after the first one or two but I think this group is pretty nice throughout. Another I like is if you give a moose a muffin. It's a nice size book. My son loves to hold books under his arm and this one is just the right size. It's not too long for reading at bedtime but long enough to tell a little simple story.

My one year old just loves her "cake" book. We read it pretty much everyday and she never tires of it. I have to admit I do not mind reading it every day either, like you do with some childrens books. It is a really cute story which, in a very suitable way, teaches children about consequences. Nothing bad happens to anyone or anything negative, it just shows how our actions affect outcomes and one thing leads to another. It does so in such a cute and appropriate way and not at all heavy handed. My daughter even makes cute noises at certain points in the story so it can be interactive as well. We also have the matching cat stuffed animal.

The Numeroff/Bond team does it again with a charming story of cause and effect, beginning and ending with giving a cat a cupcake. Children love predicting what will happen next and giggle at the illustrations. A worthy purchase.

From my sister-in-law "Gannon just loved them...he told my parents about reading the bible! He got into trouble one night and we sent him to his room. I could hear him making some noise and asked him what he was doing and he shouted "I'm reading the bible!" too funny! I couldn't say it any better

She has added a number of cute and adorable stories to go with this theme. My children and I get excited everytime she comes out with a new one. The stories are funny and cute. The pictures are colorful, adorable and make you giggle. These are excellent stories and I recommend them for anyone that has children or grandchildren. You will fall in love with this and all the other stories in this line!

This book is good for small children and pre-readers. As the child learns, this book will be good for them to practice their reading. Not as good as the other "If you give..." books.

The series of IF YOU GIVE books are awesome for kids. It helps teach them the concept of sequence, action and consequence, in a fun and entertaining manner. Great gift for the very young and young.

I can't tell you how many times I have read the books from this series. My children love to have them read to them and they will carry them around and read them over and over. Thank you for this great reading experience.
