#1 New York Times bestselling author Laura Numeroff, author of the hugely popular children’s book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, offers this hilarious parody of her own book for the man in your life.
If you give a man a cookie...he's going to want milk to go with it...God forbid he should get it himself.
If You Give a Man a Cookie is a woman’s commentary about her helpless man and the chain of events that leads him on a journey from the bed to the bathroom to the couch and back to bed at nightfall.

I loved the illustrations but the story didn't work for me. I get that this was a parody of the author's previous book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie but I didn't find it funny. I found the story clichéd and annoying. The man wants a cookie, then he wants milk, then he puts the empty milk container in the fridge, etc... I'm sure lots of people will love this book but it just wasn't for me. Thank you so much to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for the opportunity to read this book.
Cute funny parody based on the Children's book. The illustrations are cute but the story is very simple. It is a very quick read.
*I received a digital copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.* Synopsis: If You Give a Man a Cookie is a woman’s commentary about her helpless man and the chain of events that leads him on a journey from the bed to the bathroom to the couch and back to bed at nightfall. Review: I absolutely love Laura Joffe Numeroff and her “If you give” series. I couldn’t wait for this one to be released and see if it was just as good as her other books. Although it’s hard to compare the two when they are geared towards different audiences. I will say I wasn’t super pleased with the illustrations. I enjoyed the story but feel the illustrations took away from the overall experience. The man on the cover kind of scares me a bit lol! I did enjoy the humor in the story and felt it was lighthearted fun. The ending was just perfection that had me grinning. Overall, it was pretty good but could’ve been so much better with different illustrations.
