Meet the Author

Laura Numeroff

Laura Numeroff is the author of many books for young readers in addition to the If You Give... series, including The Chicken Sisters and Laura Numeroff's 10-Step Guide to Living with Your Monster. She lives in Los Angeles, CA where she loves to ride horses, read biographies, and play with her pets. A portion of her royalties will be donated to First Book, a national nonprofit organization that promotes children’s literacy.

Felicia Bond is the illustrator of numerous books for children. In addition to the If You Give . . . series, she has also illustrated, among other titles, Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown and Little Porcupine's Christmas by Joseph Slate.

An avid animal lover, reader, and cook, she lived for many years in New York and currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Felicia Bond ha ilustrado muchos libros para niños. Aparte de la conocida serie Si le das . . . , también ha ilustrado Big Red Barn por Margaret Wise Brown y Little Porcupine's Christmas por Joseph Slate. Es la autora e ilustradora de los libros Poinsettia: The Day It Rained Hearts, The Halloween Play y Tumble Bumble. Le encantan los animales, los libros al igual que cocinar. Vivió en Nueva York durante muchos años, y ahora vive en Austin, Texas, y Santa Fé, Nuevo México.

Biography

If you give a series-prone author an inch, she'll take a mile -- and fortunately for fans of Laura Numeroff's books, she took her concept and is still running with it. Her aphoristic animal stories show what happens when you give a little something ... and get a big list of follow-up requests.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and its companion titles have become favorites not only of parents, but of teachers who like the books' visual elements and domino-effect storylines. Numeroff's other popular titles, What Mommies Do Best/What Daddies Do Best and What Grandpas Do Best/What Grandmas Do Best, are loving paeans to activities shared with adults.

A would-be fashion designer who grew up in Brooklyn and now lives in California with a mini-menagerie of pets, Numeroff's stock in trade is her "silly imagination" and her love of animals. Her versatility as a storyteller has been enhanced by the fact that she works with different illustrators, though it also means that all Numeroff titles may not suit the same reader. Her anthropomorphic stories often capitalize on fantasy, but she also has a knack for rhyme, evident in particular in her books Dogs Don't Wear Sneakers and Chimps Don't Wear Glasses.

Numeroff doesn't seem to run out of ideas for ridiculous situations to put people and animals in, nor does she stop celebrating what's special about family relationships. This is what will keep readers coming back to her titles, series-oriented or not.

Good To Know

Numeroff says her parents instilled a love of science and stamp collecting in her as a child, and she has grown into a collector as an adult. Among her collections: stuffed animals, old photographs, autographed children's books, and Halloween masks.

As a teenager, Numeroff was inspired by her sister to become a fashion designer, leading to her attendance at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn for college. "Unfortunately," she says, "I hated everything about the fashion department and I couldn't sew to save my life!" Instead, she took a class on writing and illustrating books for children. Her first effort, about the tallest girl in the third grade, was sold before Numeroff graduated. (Amy for Short is now out of print.)

    The standard version is better.

    The special features in this collector's edition are stickers and a board game. The stiffness of the sticker page makes the book impossible for a child to read without tearing out the stickers and the spine of the book has to be broken in order for a child to play the game. Stick with the standard edition, it's a book that doesn't try to be anything else.

    This book is called if you give a mouse a cookie. If you give a mouse a cookie He’s GOING to ask you for a glass of milk when you give him the milk he’ll PROBALY ask you for a straw when he’s done with the milk he’ll probably ask you for a napkin. Then he’ll want to look for a mirror to make sure he doesn’t have a milk mustache. Then he will look milk for a mirror, he might notice his hair needs a trim. I think this story is funny. I don’t think I want to have this mouse because He will make a mess. I like when the mouse drew a picture of his family. If you like funny stories you should read this story.
