Two Twisted Remakes Of "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie"

Laura Numeroff’s classic children’s book If You Give A Mouse A Cookie isn’t a frightening or disturbing book in any way, in fact it’s tame even by children’s book standards.

The simple tale deals with a mouse who doesn’t seem to know when to stop asking for stuff, and the comically circular tale can, at most, be seen as a warning against unending desire and greed.

If you go with an extremely moralistic, and totally bleak, view of Numeroff's tale you might end up with something that looks like the Gritty Reboots version of If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, a version sure to give kids nightmares:

But if you like your mouse themed fare a bit more lighthearted then you'll enjoy Anne Droyd's modern mouse-terpiece If You Give A Mouse An iPhone, as narrated by Fred Armisen.

If You Give A Mouse An Iphone warns readers about all the fun and adventure you'll miss in real life while you're staring at your iPhone screen all day:
