Format: Paperback
Even though most people wouldn't know what to call them,I can't imagine anyone who has not seen one and got a kick out of solving it. Quite simply, they are just a very simple sketch that can be drawn by anyone in a couple of seconds and represents something.The object is to determine what the Droodle represents.It's a little hard to show one ,but I'll give it a go;

A picture of an apple with 2 worms sticking out.

Ans.Worm taking date to dinner.

A large circle with 2 feet at the bottom.

Ans.Bubble Gum Champ.

Price gives some great comments on them. For instance on this one; "If you got this one,it shows you have a healthy attitude toward life and are fond of sports. However,if you prefer the alternate title:

Small Boy Throwing Baseball (at You).

you are apprehensive and nervous and should get a divorce and go live all alone in the mountains somewhere."

Or;

A square with a lot of dots beside it.

Ans. Unassembled Sandpaper.

There is another simple puzzle which is quite similar.Virtually everyone has seen these,too. They are called Plexers and usually made up of letters or words.For example:

TUNE BADwolf BADINSHAPE

TUNE

TUNE

TUNE

ANS. Tune-up...Big bad wolf ...In bad shape.

A similar book of these is listed on Amazon. "Plexers" by Dave Hammond.

As you can see,this is simple stuff,that can be enjoyed by all ages. Simple as they seem when solved; sometimes you can rack your brains over them.Then there is also the possibility of multiple solutions. Why not take the solution and ask that a Droodle be drawn; the challenge increases immensely.

I have enjoyed Roger Price's Droodles for many years. As the only collection of Droodles in print it is better than nothing. The binding on the copy I received was poor. The interior was falling out. This edition substitutes satirical pseudo art critic commentary for Roger's original commentary. It is not as amusing. The book format has one Droodle per page and a sparse commentary on the opposing page. Note that only a single title is offered per Droodle rather than several as Roger offered. The fake art commentary quickly wears thin. I hope that a complete Droodle collection with Roger Price's original commentary and all of his titles is printed.

The author, Roger Price, was a first-rank single-panel magazine cartoonist of the 'fifties, and he invented this art style--a great, funny time waster, and a neat gift book when you are fresh out of ideas and want some little thing to let that special someone with a sense of humor know that you are thinking of them.

Joseph (Joe) Pierre,

former 1950's single-panel magazine cartoonist

If you never read Roger Price's original books, this pseudo art appreciation book might be enjoyable As I was buying it to replace a book which has disintegrated by family rereading and time, it was less than I had expected. .

One of the brilliant minds of the 20th century, an age of tension. For him. anyway. He had one grunch but the eggplant over there.
