Format: Paperback
Poor little Poodle isn't too happy when his mistress brings Scruffy home from the pound. A huge Labradoodle, Scruffy not only is messy, but he is huge, eats a lot, drinks from the toilet, and even has fleas! Though he steals food from the counter, knocks things down while running through the house, and does not have the class of a pedigreed Poodle, he is good in some ways...he can chase the neighbor's cat up a tree, he offers shelter from the rain, body heat from the cold, and he does like Poodle!!!

This charming children's story in delightful rhyme will amuse every reader as it shows there IS room for more than one dog in the family. Illustrations add to this giving the tale a heartwarming visual.

Format: Paperback
The balance of friendship can be a difficult one to understand. At times one may feel they are overshadowed by a friend and become frustrated. Poodle and Doodle by Donna J. Shepherd explores an unexpected friendship in this delightful rhyming story of two distinctly different dogs.

What comes forth through the eyes of one fancy poodle pup, Angel, is her own insecurities of having another dog around. When Scruffy, a cross between Poodle and Labrador is brought home by their owner, Leah, havoc ensues wherever Scruffy goes. His less than stellar manners appall Angel until the "ah-ha" moment that Scruffy is not so bad and is actually fun to have around.

Shepherd wonderfully brings to life real life issues all humans contend with in finding their place with friends. Most of all, we are all individuals whether canine or human and should appreciate the positives in all we meet.

Illustrator, Jack Foster brings the canine characters to life with their young owner, Leah, making it an adventure to read over and over again.

Format: Paperback
With its delightful language and charming illustrations, Poodle and Doodle is a picture book that can be read and enjoyed again and again. The story of how Angel, the "perfect" poodle, adjusts to the intrusion of Scruffy, the Labradoodle, will make both children and adults laugh. Donna Shepherd's clever rhymes bring Angel's personality to life, and Jack Foster's artwork adds to the humor. Hidden bones in many of the illustrations keep things fun for multiple readings. The story entertains while teaching good lessons about friendship and change. Great for both home and school libraries!

Format: Paperback
When Scruffy- part Poodle, part Labrador Retriever joins the family, he is snubbed by the family's dog, a full breed Poodle. Everything Scruffy does is "rude and rough" from eating his food, to eating a sandwich off the kitchen counter. But, the pretty little Poodle soon discovers that having Scruffy around can come in handy, AND that he is actually a good friend. Well written rhyme and colorful illustrations show the dichotomy between these two silly dogs and encourage children to never judge a book a by its cover!

My Review: Angel couldn't understand why Leah would bring home another dog. Her question was, "I'm a fancy poodle pup. Am I not dog enough?" She just could not understand why Leah needed a dog like Scruffy that gobble down his dinner while she takes small bites, or drink out of the toilet or roll around like a mutt in wet and weedy grass; this dog shows no doggie class at all (funny). But she discovers that there may be a reason for keeping him around after all.

Some children find it hard to accept change for example; they can feel overshadowed by a new friend or a new baby. But the lesson in this book is about friendship and how to adapt to change.

Whether you love dogs or not Poodle and Doodle is a cute story that children and adults will find funny. The beautiful illustration done by Jack Foster helps bring the book to life with its bright and bold colors. I highly recommend this book for you children home library and for classroom teaching.
