This is a fun and wacky addition to the collection of books written by Daniel Pinkwater. Nick and Maxine happen to find Mrs. Noodlekugel's backyeard, and even though they were told by their parents to not go and disturb Mrs. Noodlekugel, they still go. Once they were there, she invited them in and they get to meet an awesome talking cat. They have some fun making cookies, and they also get to meet some mice. Once they go back home, they are told by their parents that Mrs. Noodlekugel was going to be their new babysitter, which they were really happy to hear. ( )

What’s not to love about Mrs. Noodlekugel and her talking cat and farsighted mice! Nick and Maxine wander into her yard behind their big apartment building and the adventures begin. This is a great story for elementary kids. They will love the antics of Mr. Fuzzface and the others. I highly recommend this story! ( )

I expect so much more from Daniel Pinkwater. I am not the target audience (beginning readers) but there was just so much potential in this book that I kept waiting, turning the pages and waiting for some of that Pinkwater magic AND it just never came.

Illustrations were amazing, characters were great, diaglogue was akin to the old Dick and Jane books, plot was almost non-existent (which is not a bad thing in a Pinkwater book).

An average book but when compared to the greatness of other Pinkwater books this was a disappointment. ( )
