With signature wit and whimsy, the inimitable Daniel Pinkwater introduces an eccentric, endearing babysitter every child will wish they could have.
Nick and Maxine live in a tall building with one apartment on top of another. So when they look out their window and see a little house they never knew was there, of course they must visit (especially when their parents tell them not to!). Going through the boiler room, they?re amazed to find to a secret backyard with a garden, a porch, and a statue of a cat. And they?re even more amazed when that cat starts to talk. . . . Welcome to the world of Mrs. Noodlekugel, where felines converse and serve cookies and tea, vision-impaired mice join the party (but may put crumbs up their noses), and children in search of funny adventures are drawn by the warm smell of gingerbread and the promise of magical surprises.
Nick and Maxine have moved into a very tall apartment building with their parents, but when they spy a tidy little house wedged in-between all the skyscrapers, the siblings are immediately fascinated. Despite their parents' objections, the two sneak a visit via the boiler room, only to discover the magical Mrs. Noodlekugel. With a talking, tea-serving cat and a quartet of blind mice, she is a wonder. This chapter book is filled with Daniel Pinkwater's signature wit and humor, as well as engaging spot art. Pinkwater is the author of numerous books for children, including the beloved HOBOKEN CHICKEN EMERGENCY.
