Source of Lots of Giggles in our House

We received a gem of a book from a family member recently.  She remembered it from her own childhood and was happy to find it at a rummage sale.  This book was worth every penny, as it is the source of lots of giggles in our house.

Without further ado, I give you Cookie’s Week:

Cookies Week by Cindy Ward Tomie dePaola

It’s about a kitty named Cookie who manages to get in all sorts of trouble each day of the week.  The first page really packs a punch with its opening sentence:

Page 1 of Cookie's Week. On Monday...Cookie fell in the toliet.

How can any other book compete with that?  So cute and fun to read with my kids as their giggles escape uncontrollably.  Thank you so much for the fun book!!

Have you seen this book before?

On a slightly more advanced reading level, I have enjoyed Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer.  These are all books that sort of jump around time-wise and some change narrators.

What book are you enjoying right now?
