Maybelle In The Soup

Summary:

Mr. and Mrs. Peabody think things are just so in their home at Number 10 Grand Street. They don't know that Maybelle, a cockroach, and her friend Henry (a flea) live quietly under the refrigerator. Maybelle's dream is to have a meal that's bigger than crumbs - and Mrs. Peabody's very special dinner is just that meal. Dinner turns into mayhem when Maybelle is part of the first course. The adventures continue when the Peabodys, Maybelle, and Henry move to the local hotel while the house is fumigated. Will Maybelle's life ever be the same?
