Mrs. Noodlekugel is the perfect babysitter. Her house is hidden behind an apartment building and has an air of mystery about it. Her pets are highly unusual, two talking cats and four blind mice. Whether bedtime or mealtime, Nick and Maxine are kept on their toes as they never know what will happen next. Then the most unexpected thing happens, Captain Noodlekugel arrives after being lost at sea. He brings with him yet another odd pet, a drooling bear. Pinkwater is a master of quirk and these intermediate chapter books are sure to entertain anyone 1st grade and up. The black and white illustrations are a charming companion to the story.
