Marvin the mouse is BORED ...  BORED ...  BORED!!  Even though he's been living a very comfortable life in Macy's Department Store, it's still been a long, dull winter and Marvin wants to walk on the rodent wild side for awhile.  So, he convinces his good friends, Fats and Raymond, to share in his adventure which begins with an exciting ride in a shopping bag full of toy rabbits. The three friends end their ride at NYC's Central Park where Marvin is especially fascinated by the daredevil rollerbladers he sees.  But they keep on going because Raymond wants to visit the world famousGuggenheimMuseum, or as Marvin keeps calling it, the GooglesteinMuseum.  After arriving at the museum and promptly getting locked in, these rodent adventurers find lots to keep them busy.  It turns out that Fats may have real artistic abilities while Marvin realizes that the museum offers the perfect place to try out some extreme rollerblade moves.  It's up to Raymond to keep everyone safe but is he up to the task when an exterminator gets involved?  For a fast paced, light hearted adventure, readThe Great Googlestein Mystery by Jean Van Leeuwen. Oklahoma Sequoyah Children’s Book Award nominee, 2005-2006
