This One and That One love cookies! But Mom is making these ones just for Dad - so it's off to bed without even a taste. Dad goes off fishing. He sits by his rod waiting all evening, but it's just a "bad fish day" - nothing doing. Mom thought it might just be like that and brings those cookies down in the hamper to cheer him up.

Sweet Book Apr 4, 2008
This is a lovely book, which focuses on family togetherness. The illustrations are beautiful. It would make a nice gift for twins.
Yuck! Feb 1, 2008
I'm sure every parent has that one book on the shelf that he hopes his child doesn't pick for bedtime reading. For me, it's this book. It's important for me to show my children that reading is fun. But, when I don't like a book, it's hard to make it exciting for my kids.
The writing is, shall I say, childish. Maybe a child just learning to read would find the book stimulating, but reading it to my three-year-old is a chore.
The story of Lady Jane making cookies for Big Jim's fishing trip goes awry when This One and That One (their kits) eat almost all the cookies. The story takes a strange turn into sexual innuendo when Jane and Jim share an intimate moment on the beach. Jane and Jim dance, and he starts panting and becomes very excited about getting his "cookies," but the kits spoil it all by popping up at an inopportune time.
Funny? Sort of. Weird? Yeah. Tough to read? No doubt about it.

This book stinks. There is nothing to it. It is pure gibberish.
THIS ONE AND THAT ONE SMELL COOKIES BAKING!!! May 9, 2005
Actress Jane Seymour and her husband, Actor James Keach, are among the latest celebrities to jump on the children's book bandwagon and are doing so very successfully. They've created a wonderful series of books in which their family of cats stand-in for their own family, allowing them to share their own experiences as parents and at the same time delighting children with the tales of their twin kittens, "This One and That One."
In "Yum", the twin kittens smell cookies baking as it's time for them to go off to bed. They want cookies but Lady Jane cat explains that the cookies are for dad to take when he goes fishing. Off to bed go the kids as mom packs the cookies in a picnic basket. But the kids cannot get the vision and smell of those cookies out of their heads. They sneak downstairs and crawl right into the basket and then mom carries it out to dad who is fishing by the shore. Well, the kittens did a number on those cookies but each saved a big cookie for dad as the book closes with the family dancing on the beach.
As with their other books, "Yum" is very anecdotal in its story relating the very simple stories that all parents experience with their kids. As our own kids can sometimes be, This One and That One can sometimes be a bit of a nuisance, but they're always adorable and filled with love. The book is complemented with the excellent illustrations of Geoffrey Planer who helps bring it all to life.
Great story!!! Nov 18, 2003
I bought this book when my oldest's second Christmas(he's now seven.) It has since been read over a 1000 times!!! My children love the entire series about This One & That One so much that they've taken to calling a family friend "Big Jim." I highly recommend all the books in this series.
