Introduction “Who Moved My Cheese?” (Spencer Johnson, M.D., 1998) is an extremely short, yet intriguing book. The main characters of the story are “littlepeople” approximately the size of mice, named Hem and Haw, along with Sniff and Scurry, two small mice. Hem, Haw, Sniff, and Scurry share a home in a maze with a sole purpose of finding cheese to eat. Other valuable characters in the story are a group of former classmates who have gathered for a class reunion and provide a variety of perspectives regarding their experiences compared to those of the four small main characters. Book Summary The book illustrates the dilemma of Sniff, Scurry, Hem and Haw and their quest for cheese.
The two mice, Sniff and Scurry, along with the people, Hem and Haw, live in a maze like environment living off cheese. This cheese is a representation of everything the characters want, such as happiness and success. In the beginning of the story, the four are cheese-less and are actively looking for cheese, similar to someone jumping into adulthood and trying to make his/her way in society. Eventually, the four find a giant cheese room called Cheese Station C. The amount of cheese they find is great so the people become complacent and establish their daily routines around Cheese Station C. Sniff and Scurry arrive at Cheese Station C one day and see that there is no more left. However, they are not surprised and had actually anticipated the cheese supply to run out.
He becomes arrogant and complacent, and once his “cheese” runs out doesn’t look for new “cheese. The book illustrates that we must all be open to the idea of change. We must not get too comfortable where we are, because one day, the “cheese” may be gone. Continuing to plan ahead and constantly looking for new “cheese” in our own “mazes” allows us to adapt and to grow. While reading the book, we can find 3 main elements: teamwork, listening and motivate Team Work Sniff and Scurry display team work in their quest to find “cheese”.

He liked to explore all the places he should stay out of and get things that he was not supposed to have.
