If you give a mouse a cookie – a tacos review

If you give this reviewer a funny book like, let’s say, ‘If you give a mouse a cookie’, chances are he’ll read it and laugh. If he reads ‘If you give a mouse a cookie’ while drinking lemonade, chances are the lemonade will spurt from his great big nose. If lemonade spurts from his great big nose, it will probably spill on the book. If he spills lemonade on the book, he’ll definitely want to wipe it up. If he wipes the book up, chances are he’ll want to keep reading it. If he keeps reading it, he’ll probably start laughing again. If he starts laughing again, he’ll want to write a review on his blog. If he writes a review on his blog, you might see it and want to go out and read the funny book. If you read ‘If you give a mouse a cookie’, chances are you’ll start laughing. If you start laughing, please put down your lemonade.

Never give a mouse a cookie.

Mice are cheeky little critters who stir up all kinds of shenanigans. So, never give a mouse a cookie, not even if he asks really nicely. However, if you want to read a book about a mouse who gets a cookie, and what happens after he gets the said cookie, then do go out and get a copy of ‘If you give a mouse a cookie.’ But don’t give a mouse a cookie. But do read the book and you’ll see why. But, don’t give a mouse a cookie.
