Book Review Of “Tough Cookie” By Edward Hemingway @barbfisch @blueslipper

When a cookie discovers he does NOT taste delicious, he has to find a new identity in this clever picture book twist on a holiday classic.

Once upon a time, while Fox was visiting the land of Holiday Treats, a little cookie—still warm from the bakery oven—burst out the front door looking sweet and ready to be devoured. But, as it turns out, Cookie is not as fast as he thinks and when Fox finally catches him, they’re both in for a big surprise: Sugar Cookie does 
not taste delicious—and he’s certainly not fit to be eaten. What’s an unsavory cookie to do? Is there another option for this not-so-sweet treat?

This inventive story celebrates the joy of being accepted for who we are.

Thank you to Blue Slip Media for gifting my boys and I a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are our own.

Liam gives this book two thumbs up.

Mommy gives it two thumbs up.

This was a cute story, and I really enjoyed the new fun twist to a classic story. I loved that it showed kids that it’s okay to be who you are, even if you feel like you’re different. Sugar Cookie Man, had several struggles in the book, he couldn’t run fast, he couldn’t build his own house, and most importantly, he didn’t taste good. He thought he was a sweet cookie, but come to find out, he was anything but. But, he comes to accept himself, and realize that he is okay, just the way he is. Such a good positive message for little readers. I am glad this is one book that I got to share with my boys.

I realize this is a Holiday book, but we had a lot of chaos going on during the Holiday season. Buying a house, moving, and mommy going back to work part-time, set us back some. But we felt this book was just way to cute to not review. All Three of us loved the illustrations too, and the matte pages. Just such a fun, colorful, festive read. Definitely add this to your Holiday book list for next Christmas! Also, loved the added touch of the recipes in the back! Also, if I do recall this is written by the Great (or Great Great) Grandkid of Ernst Hemingway.
