Maybelle doesn’t go looking for adventures, but they seem to find her anyway. She just can’t be content eating crumbs in the dark like a cockroach should. No, Maybelle wants to taste the delicious surprise in Mrs. Peabody’s famous Chocolate Surprise Cookies.
So when Mrs. Peabody holds a Ladies’ Spring Tea, Maybelle follows the advice of her new fly friend, Maurice. She goes for it—and tumbles into a tasty but terrifying adventure in this delightful sequel to Maybelle in the Soup.
Maybelle Goes to Tea is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
