Mrs. Noodlekugel And Four Blind Mice
Four farsighted mice get glasses and a talking cat solves a family mystery as the charmingly eccentric Mrs. Noodlekugel returns. When Mrs. Noodlekugel's four mice make a terrible mess with cookie crumbs at tea, she decides to take them on the bus to visit the eye doctor and invites Nick and Maxine to come along! The mice ride on Mrs. Noodlekugel's hat, while Mr. Fuzzface, her talking cat, has the indignity of riding in a carrier. Afterward, the hungry crew head to Dirty Sally's Lunchroom, but the mice overdo their cheesecake and run out the door. Luckily, a policeman is at the ready to help with the search as is a rough-edged, yarn-spinning alley cat with a surprising connection to Mr. Fuzzface! It's all a day in the life of Daniel Pinkwater's whimsical characters, in a chapter-book series whose comical tone and cozy illustrations are sure to keep young readers coming back for more.
