Here's why I love the library: I would never, ever, have picked up a book with a COCKROACH as the main character but when I told the librarian I was looking for a good beginning chapter book, she grabbed this one off the shelf for me. What a good book!
Maybelle isn't quite content with her life under the refrigerator, coming out to eat crumbs on the floor only at night when everyone else was asleep. She wanted to have a real meal, on a real plate. Well, you can imagine it caused problems for Mr. and Mrs. Peabody when Maybelle came out to sample the soup during their fancy dinner party!
Mybelle and her friend Henry, a flea who lives on the Peabody's cat, have a strange adventure in this book. And even though I never want to see a real cockroach at my house, I am looking forward to reading the next book in this trilogy. I'll add this to my wish list to get for our classroom library.
NOTE: Trilogy means that there are 3 books in this series.
