If You Give a Mouse a Cookie meets Stuck in this clever laugh-riot that honors an underrated superstar in kid-cuisine -- cereal -- and the girl who just can't eat enough of it . . . no matter how large a mess she leaves in her wake!

"[A] buoyant tale of togetherness." --Kirkus

Once there was a girl who only ate cereal. This kid LOVED cereal. But lots of cereal can make a BIG mess and get a girl in trouble. So she asks the dog for help cleaning up her crumbs, but the dog soon fills up. Then she asks a cat, but the cat only wants to nap. One after another, animals try to help...but the mess is too large!

Then the girl meets a pig...

Perfect for the fan of Dragons Love Tacos, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, and Oliver Jeffers' Stuck.

About the Author

James Serafino is an author-illustrator living in Brooklyn, NY. He grew up eating cereal and reading comics in the early mornings before anyone else was awake. Early on, he learned to draw and tell stories and never clean up after himself, unless he absolutely had to. These traditions carried on through art school in New York City and beyond. Crumbs and milk stains have damaged many of the paintings in this book, but he hopes you'll enjoy it all the same.
