Noodle & Lou by Liz Garton Scanlon - ESSENTIAL

Scanlon, Liz Garton Noodle & Lou illustrated by Arthur Howard 32 pg. Beach Lane Books, 2011. PICTURE BOOK. $14.99. Noodle, the worm, is having a rough day. Discouraged about being a worm, he seeks out his best friend bird, Lou. Lou knows just what to say and helps Noodle chase those blues away.
This was a really sweet story about the power of friendship. Although Noodle and Lou were an unlikely pair it worked well in the story. The text has a great rhyming quality to it but the dialogue gets a bit choppy and confusing in some parts. The watercolor illustrations are phenomenal! EL-ESSENTIAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
