3. Not sure...
It was a whimsical satire regarding the American consumer and their endless pursuit of satisfaction from material items.


If you give a mouse a cookie, he is going to ask for a glass of milk. If you give a mouse a glass of milk, he is going to ask for a napkin...

7. Oh, of course
But my little literary connoiseur prefers If You Give a Pig a Party. But If You Give a Mouse a Cookie will suffice in a pinch.

15. Of course.
I spent 12 years in a school library before I moved into the classroom. I read to 32 classes a week, among other things. I remember when that one was newly published. I know I've read it at least 32 times.
