In this Junior Library Guild selection and sequel to her critically acclaimed Maybelle in the Soup, Katie Speck delivers another compelling episode from the life of America's favorite cucaracha. When the Peabodys leave their home to buy goodies for a spring tea, a pesky fly zooms in. Trying to escape, he bashes into some glass and lands bellyup on the windowsill. If the Peabodys find him before he recovers, they will overreact and call the dreaded exterminator. With the fate of fellow housemates in her hands-and with chocolate cookies beckoning-what's a little cockroach to do?
