Mrs. Noodlekugel

By Daniel Pinkwater
Illustrated by Adam Stower

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.

  • A delightful cross between Pippi Longstocking and Mrs Piggle Wiggle for the 21st Century!
  • A warm and silly first chapter book with talking cats, near-sighted mice, and a dash of magic from a master humorist.
  • Daniel Pinkwater is a nationally recognized figure in the children's book world.
