At first I was concerned that this title may be too alike to "If You Give a Mouse a Cupcake"...but it's a completely different book. It may be cutely paired with the former in a storytime about sweet things...or mice! Little Mouse stumbles upon a chocolate-chip, raspberry-cream cupcake (which sounds a little bit gross to me) that he sees as a yummy surprise. The problem: it's too big to carry home. With some help from his friends, they work it out...the audience will be on the edge of their seats during the tenuous moment right before the pleasing ending. This is a standout title for a readaloud once I'm back in the library!
