Summary (via Goodreads):
Mouse is back in this ninth picture book in the beloved #1 New York Times bestselling If You Give… series!

If you give a mouse a brownie, he’s going to ask for some ice cream to go with it. When you give him the ice cream, he’ll probably ask you for a spoon. He’ll start drumming on the table. Drumming will get him so excited he’ll want to start a band. . . .

Mouse makes his long-anticipated return to the spotlight in this winning picture book from the acclaimed team of Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond.

My Review:
I didn’t know there were so many books in this series – I’d only read the first two. If You Give A Mouse A Brownie is just as cute as the ones I’ve read. The cause and effect of giving the mouse a brownie takes the reader on a crazy adventure. And the illustrations are just so adorable and fitting for these books. I love all the colors – they’re so…welcoming, so to speak. It’s quite a different experience reading this book as an adult. The mouse comes off as very demanding (comically, sort of, in a way) that it’s no surprise the boy in the story is exhausted by the end. But reading it is still a fun experience.
