author: Daniel Pinkwater
illustrator: Adam Stower
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.
“Pinkwater works narrative magic within the grammatical confines of the early reader format.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
