Overview

The Wheedle, a large furry creature with a red blinking nose, has lived wrapped in peace and quiet atop the Space Needle for years and years.

From Stephen Cosgrove and Robin James, the creators of the Serendipity Series, a delightful tale of caring and understanding as the Wheedle finds the the source of the noise, an abandoned kitten he calls the Noodle.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Wheedle has been snoring contentedly on the Needle for the past 30 years, when his peaceful slumber is rudely interrupted by a sad and insistent meowing. What happens next will surprise not only your little Wheedles, but all of us who would stare up at the Needle’s red light as kids…or wished we had. Find out what the power of friendship and plain old kitten cuddles will teach even the most curmudgeonly of creatures.

Nearly four decades afte furry creature Wheedle made his first appearance in Wheedle on the Needle, he returns in this charming book.
Alaska Airlines Magazine
School Library Journal
Gr 1–2—As legend has it, the Wheedle, a creature with a red, blinking nose, lives atop Seattle's Space Needle. The usually grumpy creature meets a lost kitten, Noodle, who is looking for a home. Ultimately the notoriously solitary Wheedle learns to share his life and his Needle with the abandoned pet. A sweet story with an obvious moral wrapped up neatly at the end, the book will appeal to adults familiar with the Wheedle story from more than 20 years ago. Bright illustrations give the characters texture and life, making them both look soft enough to pet. The story itself, though, is slightly long-winded for what is a simple, gentle story of friendship. It's an okay selection for readers in the Pacific Northwest, but may not be of as much interest to others.—Sarah Townsend, Norfolk Public Library, VA
