It's official, everyone, Cookie Monster is a published author!

"Over the year, Me have many profound thoughts about cookies and other things," Cookie explains to Rach. "So Me thought me’d share them with the world."

And we're sure glad he did!

As promised, the new book, The Joy of Cookies: Cookie Monster’s Guide to Life -- which appropriately has a monster-sized bite taken out of it -- has "crumbs of wisdom" sprinkled throughout.

Cookie's personal favorite? "Be the monster you cookie deserves!"

(Because what cookie -- especially his Every Monster Cookie, which he shared with us from the book -- doesn't deserve to be devoured?!).

And shared with everyone. After all, the cookie recipe is vegan, nut-free and gluten-free. As he puts it: “Me share cookies with vegan monsters. And other monsters, too. Like meeee!!! Cooookkieeeeee!!”

As for Rach, her favorite piece of advice from the beloved Muppet is a bit more sentimental: "My secret for cookie is love."

"That what Me Grandma Cookie Monster taught Me," the fuzzy author says.

In fact, he even dedicated the book to his grandma -- and the reason why is oh so relatable (and makes *so* much sense).

"She gave Me me very first coooookie," he says.

Muppets, they're just like us! (Because who could forget the person who gave you your very first cookie?!)
