Publisher's Summary

When storyteller David Novak asked a young girl what she wanted for dinner, the answer he got was "Cookies!" That girl didn't get cookies for dinner, but she did get a story. Now we all can share David Novak's story about the little girl who always wanted to eat cookies. It's a story with a lesson, as most stories are, but mostly, it's a story that's fun and memorable. Throughout this collection, listeners will be gently reminded that new stories are often old stories warmed up.For Ages Four to 10


Audible Editor Reviews

Professional storyteller Novak serves up this eight-course listening treat: "The Cookie Girl," about a girl who will eat nothing but cookies; "Peter Piper's Plan," an extension of the traditional tongue-twister; variations of the fable "The Grasshopper and the Ant;" "Oh! That's a Good Idea!" an adaptation of a tale of Coyote as creator of people; "Give Me Back My Button!" a Turkish folktale; and three other stories. Novak creates a cozy storytelling circle, as is evident from the chorus of young voices responding during the live performance. Listeners young and old will join in with laughter.

The kids loved the stories. They keep asking to listen to the "cookie girl" again. We were all joining in the repeats within the stories. Can highly recommend.
