Overview

The landmark collaboration of two of children's books most beloved talents, Ludwig Bemelmans and Munro Leaf, available again!

Noodle is a little dog who's very long from front to back and very short from top to bottom, which makes it hard for him to dig for bones. One day Noodle finds a wishbone, and the dog fairy arrives with a flip-flap of wings to grant him a wish: "What size and shape do you want to be?" Noodle asks all the animals at the zoo what he should wish for, only to discover he might just be perfect -- exactly the way he is.

Originally published in 1937 by children's book greats Ludwig Bemelmans and Munro Leaf, NOODLE is a classic with a quiet wisdom that continues to hold true today.

Editorial Reviews

Noodle wishes for something other than his low-riding dachshund physique. When a "dog fairy" promises to grant his wish, the pooch interviews zoo animals to decide what shape he'd like to be. First published in 1937, this affable tale by Leaf (The Story of Ferdinand) and Bemelmans (Madeline) returns with a timeless message of self-acceptance. (ages 4 to 8)
The April 2006 issue of Child magazine
Publishers Weekly
Readers young and old will flock to the classic tale of the lovable Dachshund, Noodle by Munro Leaf, illus. by Madeline creator Ludwig Bemelmans. The book, suitably oblong, follows the pooch as he greets his dog fairy and goes off, "pitter pitter patter... (That was the sort of noise his feet made when he walked in a hurry)," in search of an appropriate wish. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
