“When I don’t have cookies with my milk, it’s like a zoo without cages . . . a pizza without a crust . . . an airplane without wings!”

Little Henry knows that some things in life just make sense together—fries with ketchup, ice cream in a cone, a coloring book with crayons. One can never go without the other! Everyone knows that, right?

Well, perhaps not his mom! After school one day, she offers Henry a glass of milk . . . but he can’t drink it on its own. Follow along as Henry explains to his mother all the reasons why milk without cookies is just plain wrong!
