Maybelle books fabulously illustrated by Paul Ratz de Tagyos
The Peabody’s like everything JUST SO.
And that means absolutely, positively NO BUGS.
When the Peabodys leave to buy goodies for Mrs. Peabody’s Ladies Spring Tea, a Very Irritating fly gets into Number 10 Grand Street and promptly knocks himself insensible trying to get out.
Maybelle the cockroach loves tasty crumbs and scrumptious sprinkles, but she is tired of braving the dangers of Mr. and Mrs. Peabody’s kitchen: the flattening feet, the bright light, and especially the cat, Ramona.
If there’s one thing Maybelle the cockroach can’t resist, it’s cake. When Mrs. Peabody bakes her famous Ten Layer Tower Of Taste for the school bake sale, Maybelle sneaks a sample — and ends up on an unexpected field trip!
