Raves and Reviews
The conversation of two egg-shaped characters reinforces for beginning readers the long “oo” sound and several sight words...Preschoolers will enjoy the short rhymes, word repetition, and cartoonlike art. Fun for young noodlers and doodlers.
– Kirkus Reviews, 915/2022
A strong addition to public and school early reader collections. The skillful use of sight words and multiple context definitions make this a good choice for easy reader collections everywhere.

Kontis' limited-vocabulary beginning reader does a lot with "oo" words that can be phonetically decoded... it is certainly accessible to emerging readers. Jacques' colorful cartoon artwork features flat, minimalist objects set against simple backgrounds, and a charming poodle sporting an artist's beret. The art also interjects some nuance into the story: while the two large creatures debate noodles, the talented pooch creates an entire portfolio of salable art. A good choice for those who prefer silly stories.

Silly sight words and a pair of colorful creatures teach the long “oo” sound in this early reader book. Two colorful, egg-shaped creatures meet each other in the park for a doodle. The possibilities grow when the Doodling Poodle joins in to doodle some noodles, and together the creatures and poodle come up with more and more ideas for doodles—and chances to use the long “oo” sound in progressively sillier sentences sure to make early readers laugh out loud. Illustrations are bright and cheerful, featuring the two colorful creatures and their beret-wearing poodle in a city park. In addition to making use of rhymes on most pages, text introduces various definitions of the word “noodle.” Words are well spaced and in large print.
VERDICT A strong addition to public and school early reader collections. The skillful use of sight words and multiple context definitions make this a good choice for easy reader collections everywhere.
