Mrs. Noodlekugel by Daniel Pinkwater, Adam Stower

With signature wit and whimsy, the inimitable Daniel Pinkwater introduces an eccentric, endearing babysitter every child will wish they could have. Nick and Maxine live in a tall building with one apartment on top of another. So when they look out their window and see a little house they never knew was there, of course they must visit (especially when their parents tell them not to!). Going through the boiler room, they're amazed to find to a secret backyard with a garden, a porch, and a statue of a cat. And they're even more amazed when that cat starts to talk. . . . 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.

It's time to get a little bit silly, adventurous, whimsical, and down-right fun loving. Yes! It's time to explore Mrs. Noodlekuger by Daniel Pinkwater. Now as you can see from the cover image, Mrs. Noodlekuger is a delightfully cheerful little old lady. Well, Nick and Maxine (our children in this delightful story) have discovered a tiny little house situated at the rear of the tall apartment building - in fact surrounded by tall buildings - in which they now live. Their curiosity gets the best of them and they begin their investigation. This little book is just right for the young reader and the story line will capture their imagination. The illustrations by Adam Stower are first class and will indeed keep the young reader engrossed. Kid appeal is high in this little book. Classic kid-book-illustrations and a silly, bizarre story line make this a first-rate book that I highly recommend.
