Yum! A Tale of Two Cookies
By Jane Seymour and James Keach
Illustrated by Geoffrey Planer

Review by: Monica Barker

      THIS ONE and THAT ONE, Lady Jane and Big Jim could be your family. Yum! is the first in a series about the adventures of twin "kits", THIS ONE and THAT ONE.
      As Lady Jane and Big Jim try to get the twins ready for bed, the curious kits discover that Mom (Lady Jane) is baking cookies for Dad (Big Jim) to take fishing later that night. No, THIS ONE and THAT ONE can't have any cookies tonight. No, they can't go fishing either. Or can they? As Lady Jane is brushing her whiskers and fluffing her fur before she joins Big Jim down on the beach, THIS ONE and THAT ONE slip into the picnic basket with the freshly baked cookies. After dancing in the sand with Lady Jane, Big Jim is ready for some cookies. Instead, he finds an empty bag and THIS ONE and THAT ONE each with a cookie in hand for Dad. Lady Jane, Big Jim, THIS ONE and THAT ONE dance together on the sand by the light of the moon…
"One paw here,
And one paw there;
High step, low step,
Up in the air.
Three paws, four paws
off the ground;
Dancing cats' paws,
'Round and 'Round."
      The back-and-forth banter of the family's dialogue, along with bright and bold illustrations make Yum! a fun story to read to preschoolers. Yum! is also great for early readers to read aloud. Adults and children alike will enjoy the antics of THIS ONE and THAT ONE.
      "Thank You" to Joey, who at 6, asked if he could read me his favorite story: Yum!.
