Snoodles, Kidoodles, Poodles, and Lots and Lots of Noodles

A feel good, smell good, and taste good story for children

Out of a world where crankiness reigns and cars run on sauerkraut, comes an invention that changes everything: the SnoodleMobile, the brainchild of Herbie Snoodleman. Now cars are powered by noodles, and the delicious aroma produced fills everyone with happiness.  

One person, though, does not enjoy the clear sky and clean air: Sour Croodleman, the creator of the once-popular Kraut Mobile. And when he seeks revenge on Herbie Snoodleman, something terrible happens. (After all, anything is possible when cars run on noodles).

Snoodles, Kidoodles, Poodles and Lots and Lots of Noodles is a feel-good story for children age 5-10 that tastes and smells so good they will want more. Author Steven Joseph invites readers to enter a world where imagination can solve any challenge, and even the crankiest person can find happiness.
