About the Author

Tomie dePaola was born in Meriden, Connecticut, in 1934 to a family of Irish and Italian background. By the time he could hold a pencil, he knew what his life's work would be. His determination to create books for children led to a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and an MFA from the California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland, California.It drove him through the years of teaching, designing greeting cards and stage sets, and painting church murals until 1965, when he illustrated his first children's book, Sound, by Lisa Miller for Coward-McCann. Eventually, freed of other obligations, he plunged full time into both writing and illustrating children's books.

Tomie dePaola has published almost 200 children's books in fifteen different countries. He remains one of the most popular creators of books for children, receiving more than 100,000 fan letters each year.

Tomie lives in an interesting house in New Hampshire with his four dogs. His studio is in a large renovated 200-year-old barn.

Both of my kids (3,5) think this book is hysterical.

Genre: Realistic FictionPoint of View: The story is told from a third person perspective. Cookie is the main character of the story and his actions are told by the narrator/author of the story.Review: Cookie is a young cat who keeps getting into messes. This book is a good example of realistic fiction because the messes Cookie the cat gets into could indeed happen to a cat. It is also slightly informational throughout the book; it can be beneficial for students learning the days of the week.Media: watercolors and colored pencils

Always gets a laugh at preschool storytimes. Simple, but very cute.

Cookie's Week was one of my daughter's favorite books when she was a toddler, and we still treasure it. (She's in her twenties.) The black-and-white kitten gets into different trouble from Monday to Saturday, and, "Tomorrow is Sunday . . . Maybe Cookie will rest!" Maybe. It was years before I figured out that the point of the book was teaching the days of the week. It's also something kids can relate to--Cookie knocks plants off the windowsill, upsets the trash can, climbs the curtains--generally making a mess of things.

I used to read this book all the time when I was in the second grade and I loved everytime I went to the library I would check it out but when I moved I couln't ever find this book but then I searched for it on AOL and I finally found it and I still to this day love to read this book to little kids that I babysit and they love it too.
