Mrs. Noodlekugel and Four Blind Mice
author: Daniel Pinkwater
illustrator: Adam Stower
When Mrs. Noodlekugel’s four mice make a terrible mess at tea, she decides to take the mice to visit the eye doctor — and invites Nick and Maxine to come along. Who could predict they’d meet a rough-edged alley cat with a surprising connection to Mr. Fuzzface, Mrs. Noodlekugel’s talking cat? It’s all a day in the life of Daniel Pinkwater’s whimsical characters. A comical tone and cozy black-and-white illustrations are sure to keep young chapter-book readers coming back for more.
“Sly, sweet illustrations provide piquant punctuation for Pinkwater’s special brand of nonsense.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
