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.

From School Library Journal:
PAUL RÁTZ DE TAGYOS went to Parsons School of Design quite some time ago. He is the author/illustrator of several books for children. He lives in New Rochelle, New York.
Grade 2–4—Living at the Peabody home, sprightly Maybelle, a cockroach, abides by three rules: "When it's light, stay out of sight; if you're spied, better hide; and never meet with human feet." However, these rules go right out the window once she becomes aware of the Chocolate Surprise Cookies to be served at Mrs. Peabody's tea party. Easy-reader graduates will delight in Maybelle's antics and enjoy her housefly pal, Maurice, and his giggle-worthy shenanigans. Maybelle finds herself smack dab in the middle of a big adventure when she tumbles into a tasty treat. With humorous illustrations on nearly every spread, this is a sweet offering.—Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA
