This delightful picture book explores how even the fussiest eaters can be tempted to try new flavours. And, if you’re anything like Mike, you might find you develop quite a taste for international cuisine along the way!
In this story, Mike is a mouse that just doesn’t like cheese. It doesn’t matter what sort it is, he just will not eat it.
Luckily he has a little girl (Ashley) who brings him treats for dinner that come from different countries and Mike just loves them. One day however Ashley goes on holiday so the international dinners that Mike has become accustom to, aren’t available. Eventually he is just so hungry that he HAS to eat cheese…..and, you guessed it, he loves it.
The funny part is that the international dinners he has been enjoying, also contain cheese.
I’m tempted to give this book to my daughter as she is one that will often say she doesn’t like something when she hasn’t tried it. Perhaps like Mike, she might find out that she doesn’t like them, she loves them.
Hannah Chandler used to dictate tales to her mum Renee to write down when she was just three. Her love of words and stories continued until, challenged by her principal to write a book, at the age of 11 she wrote I Don’t Like Cheese! Now still only 12 and not yet in high school, she’s planning the sequel.
Lauren Merrick has always had a love of illustration. Growing up, most of her time was spent drawing and painting, and she now works full-time as an illustrator. She has developed her own whimsical illustration style, involving watercolour and paper-cut mediums.
