Mrs. Noodlekugel

By Daniel Pinkwater
Illustrated by Adam Stower

“Pinkwater works narrative magic within the grammatical confines of the early reader format.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

With signature wit and whimsy, the inimitable Daniel Pinkwater introduces an eccentric, endearing babysitter every child will wish they could have. 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 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.
  • The hardcover received a starred review from Publishers Weekly.
