Mr. and Mrs. Cockroach and Family Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Mr. and Mrs. Cockroach and Family

This is a story of two cockroaches who hid in a soldier's duffel bag and were brought to Canada from Germany. The soldier became a caretaker in an apartment building, which was infested with deformed cockroaches. The two "German" cockroaches were put to a test - to reach the Penthouse floor (from the ground floor) before they were accepted as residents in the building. They needed a password for each floor they get into and the passwords are not free. The reader is entertained with the cockroaches' awesome encounters as they watched and listened to a variety of human beings that lived in the building on their way to the Penthouse floor, where they were greeted with a very big celebration. They became the king and queen of the cockroaches and they were to bring forth a new generation of offsprings that are healthy and smart.
