And this book has indeed been a big seller on the self-help shelves. So, one night at my workplace-before-last, I spied a copy of this book lying on the breakroom table. And in many ways, it is. The book clocks in at 96 pages, and I read it cover-to-cover in 20 minutes. The text is cute and engaging and never once challenges the corporate status quo. Cheese does provide a useful reality check for people who find their lives in upheaval. It tells the story of four creatures — Sniff and Scurry mice and Hem and Haw tiny mice-sized people — who live in a maze and must search for cheese every day to survive.
It is arranged in three parts: a fable wrapped between two made-up conversations. The story itself is simple. Once, long ago and far away, there lived four little characters who ran through a maze looking for cheese. Each eventually found his favorite type of cheese at the end of Cheese Station C. When the cheese supply ran out, Sniff and Scurry went right into action looking for new cheese, because they had never abandoned their animal instincts. Hem and Haw, in contrast, waited around at Station C, complaining about their bad luck.
