Sesame Street: Cookie Countdown

Illustrated by Tom Brannon

Something smells good in Cookie Monster’s kitchen! Must be cookies, of course!

Cookie Monster just baked 10 yummy cookies to eat at Elmo’s party, but as he meets up with his friends, the cookies just keep disappearing! Just when it looks like there won’t be a single chocolatey treat left for Cookie Monster, his friends deliver a delicious surprise!

Matt Mitter was born on a Wednesday afternoon in Oklahoma City and later squandered his youth in and around the Ozarks. Later still, he lived here and there, and now and again did a bit of this and that. Over the past 20 years, he has written the text (mostly verse) for dozens of children's books that have been admired by readers of all ages for their delightful pictures.  Currently, Matt resides in San Francisco, where he and his wife are indentured to two Scottish Folds.

Tom Brannon has been illustrating children’s books for 35 years and has more than 300 titles to his credit, including many for Sesame Street, Jim Henson’s Muppets, Dr. Seuss, and Peanuts. He lives in rural Wisconsin with his wife, four children, and more critters than he can count.
