Review

Nobody can draw anything more instantly loveable than one of Dunbar's characters. Independent on Sunday Pre-school life - albeit an imaginary one with animals rather than humans - is brilliantly observed and captured in this Tilly and friends story. Observer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One of the best children's books I have come across. Suitable for about 3-6 years old. Got it when my younger daughter was 4. She would shriek with laughter as we went through the story. At 5 she still asks for it. My 7 year old daughter found it amusing but it's a bit too simple for her. It's great fun and will get the kids laughing.

This is another one of those children's picture books where the author has come up with a really clever double meaning title to grab adult's (or even kids) attention, and get them to pick it up off the shelf rather than one of the thousands of other less clever or boring titles in the book store. Kids will want to take it home, just for the laughs that taboo title brings alone. Like with picture books such as Mines Bigger Than Yours and Mum and Dad Glue, as you would probably have guessed, this is not a sequel to I Really Want to Eat a Child and has nothing to do with a crocodile taking bites out of a meal that it has made of a male animal's reproductive organs.

So what is Doodle Bites actually about? Well Doodle, as you may have guessed from the book cover, is actually a crocodile. The tale starts off with Doodle waking up one morning, sitting up erect in her bed and feeling bitey! (Yes the title's inside joke for adults does continue within the story). Anyway Doodle lives in a house with a few other animals including a human girl. Many of these animals such as a pig and chicken are animals you would think wouldn't last long living with their natural predator, but for some reason, Doodle's feeling bitey, doesn't mean she wants to eat them. Instead Doodle starts taking big chunks out of the furniture, the mail and other household items, until that is, she is tempted by the naked buttocks of Tumpty her roommate and can't resist.

Tilly, Tumpty, Hector, Tiptue, Pru and Doodle all lived together in a cozy little yellow house that had all kinds of little bitey bites taken out of it. Tilly, a little girl with dazzling curls, rosy cheeks and a perfect little smile, didn't look very happy when she stuck her head out the window. She already had three striped bandages plastered on the house and it looked like there were a few more patches that needed to be made. Chomp! Chomp! , "Bitey! Bitey! " It sure did look like Doodle had been at it again. He was all snuggled up in his bed and he "woke up feeling BITEY. " Tilly and Tiptue bunny watched him take a bitey bite out of the cereal bowl, the box and then he got right to work chomping down on the mail. Yum! Yum !

Hector piggy was sitting on the sofa reading while Pru birdie was primping and preening on the other end when you know who came along and bitey bit the sofa. Yum Yum That little lamp was very tasty, but all of a sudden Doodle "spied something very good to bite." BITEY! BITEY! Tumpty the blue elephant started to cry and said, "That's my bottom " Tilly did a bit of scolding, but Doodle just grinned as he chewed on a car. All of a sudden . . . STOMP! Tumpty stomped on Doodle's tail and he began to cry. Tilly scolded him but Tumpty, Doodle and Hector all began to cry. The red and white striped bandages came out again. Everyone was terribly sorry, but was anything going to stop Doodle from being such a naughty bitey bite alligator?

I thought this was an adorable, funny little story that made me laugh out loud, especially when Doodle's eye's lit up when he saw Tumpty's very chompable and tempting blue bottom across the room.

I read this book immediately upon receiving it and LOVED it! When I read it to my granddaughter, she said, "now that's a funny book!" It has become one of her favorites, and "bitey, bitey" has become a part of our family lexicon.

This is an adorable book for little ones. The story is engaging and simply told so it keeps the child's attention. The illustrations are just as cute. We will most likely purchase more of the books from this author. The book was purchased for our grand daughter. It also teaches a lesson about biting
