This Beloved Children’s Book Is Becoming a TV Show
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie premieres on Amazon Prime Video November 7.
If you give a mouse a cookie, he’s going to ask for his own animated show, it seems. That’s right: Laura Numeroff’s beloved children’s book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is getting the television treatment.
The educational show is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on November 7th, and will follow the adventures of curious Mouse and his friends Oliver, Moose, Pig, Cat, and Dog as they discover the endless opportunities around them. Numeroff, the book’s original author, and Felicia Bond, the illustrator, will executive produce the series, with Ken Scarborough, who has worked on other quintessential children’s shows like Arthur, Sesame Street, and Curious George, serving as head writer. The show will focus on portraying the idea of cause and effect, and the importance of creativity and imagination. Aside from the nostalgic appeal, parents might also enjoy the soundtrack to Mouse’s adventures: the series will feature new recordings by Lisa Loeb.
Three other kids' shows are also slated to be released on Amazon Prime Video this fall: season two of Wishenproof, a show about a fairy granting wishes; Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, a revival of the 1970s live-action series, and The Stinky & Dirty Show, a series based on the I Stink book series by Kate and Jim McMullan.
Only Amazon Prime members will be able to watch the show. The service, which costs $99 per year or $10 per month, also entitles subscribers to two-day shipping on millions of products, as well as access to streaming music and other perks.
