Calling fellow old people! [Dec. 10th, 2006|10:48 pm]

“I made you a cookie... but I eated it” is a caption used in this cartoon — but the line is originally from a kids' book that I remember from when I was little. Does anyone remember the name of the book? (It might not have been a cookie in the original.) The book's about a little kid who keeps trying and trying to do something nice for someone else (his parents?) but always “messes it up” in some incredibly cute way.

was it just for you by mercer mayer?

it's sitting right on my coffee table right now and it sounds like what you're describing, but the only page in it that's close to the cookie quote was "i picked you an apple...but on the way home i got hungry."

Yes! It was that little creature all right! I wonder if the cookie-making was in one of the other books in the series - possibly All By Myself?

I loved those books - I think my friends' kids are mostly too old for them now though (possibly); will have to wait for a few more people to give birth :)

Hm, although reading the reviews again... possibly not too old at all.

I've quite recently seen it as a caption on a cute photo of a cat that showed up in I forget which one of the legion LJ photo-silliness communities.

This one? That's the one that reminded me of it (someone used it as an avatar in a forum I read).

Re: old people!

I'll have you know I am much older than 30.
