Description



Book Synopsis



"Hilarious. . . . The book is a lot like life, but with more bears, as well as mice in nightshirts. . . . Utterly, endearingly ridiculous." -- Kirkus Reviews

When their father decides to compete in the speed-knitting world championship, Nick and Maxine are happy to stay with their babysitter, Mrs. Noodlekugel, along with her talking cats and four mice who wear glasses. What they don't expect is a dripping-wet, whiskered man in the kitchen the next morning! Captain Noodlekugel has left his seafaring life to train animals for the circus, and he's even brought with him a hefty bear named Drooly for practice. When Drooly goes missing, the siblings must try to figure out where a big clumsy bear might go!
