Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Ma's cookies prove irresistible not only to her offspring but to their many friends; the treats dwindle at an alarming rate with each new arrival. PW praised ``Hutchins's quirky illustrations,'' which ``nicely depict her suspenseful tale.'' Ages 4-8. (Oct.) Copyright 1989 Cahners Business Information.

Review by Publisher Summary 2

Ma makes a dozen cookies for Victoria and Sam to share, but the arrival of more and more friends means fewer cookies for each child

Review by Publisher Summary 3

Each ring of the doorbell brings more friends to share the delicious cookies Ma has made. This terrific and suspenseful read-aloud picture book about friendship, sharing, and cookies can also be used to introduce basic math concepts to young children. "Refreshing, enjoyable and unpredictable."—School Library JournalPat Hutchins is the celebrated creator of numerous award-winning books for children, includingRosie's Walk, Titch, and Don't Forget the Bacon!
