Looking out the window of their new home in a tall apartment building, Nick and Maxine see a little old fashioned house surrounded by huge buildings. Secretly, with the help of Mike, the janitor, they find it and meet the owner, a plump old lady named Mrs. Noodlekugel. She kindly invites them in for freshly baked cookies and tea. Maxine and Nick are delighted with their visit, especially when they meet her cat who bakes, plays the piano, and elegantly serves the tea. Read to discover the talents of Mrs. Noodlekugel’s four far sighted, prize winning mice, who also join them for tea.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2014)
