Book Review: Snoodles, Kidoodles, Poodles, and Lots and Lots of Noodles
Reviewed by Tavleen Kaur
Crazy rhymes, vibrant illustrations, and a creative storyline—this book of noodles comes with a side of life lessons
In Snoodles, Kidoodles, Poodles and Lots and Lots of Noodles, the world has been taken by storm. The invention of the Snoodlemobile or Snoodle, that which runs on noodles, not oil, even provides a delicious meal of, you guessed it, noodles to feed a family of four.
It spreads a delicious scent in the air, and the people of the world are much happier with it as opposed to the smell of sauerkraut, which they had been dealing with while driving Krautmobiles.
However, one person in particular is NOT happy with the revolution of Snoodles: Sour Croodleman, the man behind Krautmobiles. And so, he seeks his revenge on Mr. Snoodleman.
The book contains quite fun and fascinating illustrations, such as newspaper headlines and magazines featuring the popularity of Snoodles. It bursts with creativity and provides an enjoyable and refreshing reading experience for anyone who picks it up. This children’s book contains many endearing elements like a museum with noodle art and pictures of vehicles made from delicious foods for the enjoyment of young readers.
The book features a futuristic story, and considering how things have been over the last few years, such stories don’t feel that far removed from reality. It encourages creativity as a tool to solve problems and spreads the message of the need for cleaner surroundings for the well-being of citizens. As shown in the book, we need to live in healthier environments to diminish the crankiness that our daily lives are filled with.
There is a fair amount of silliness to the story. The author manages to charm the readers with over-the-top names like Kidnoodle Lisa and Pierre Le’Toodle. The writing is just the right amount of descriptive, considering it is meant to be read by children, teaching them new words and tongue-twisting rhymes but not overwhelming them with either.
Snoodles, Kidoodles, Poodles, and Lots and Lots of Noodles is a book that can be enjoyed by children and their adults reading along. While kids will enjoy the vibrant illustrations, rhyming words, and unique concept of the book, adults will appreciate the deeper undertones of this book, such as the future of our environment and the need for innovation to protect it.
