A Friend Indeed: Noodle and Lou by Liz Garton Scanlon
SOME DAYS DON'T GO RIGHT FROM THE START.
NOODLE WOKE UP WITH A RAIN-CLOUDY HEART.
When a worm is feelin' down, he's really got the low-down blues, and Noodle's spirits are draggin' lower than his nether end. Who's he gonna call to get him out of his muddy funk?
It's Lou, of course, a perky blue jay who's never down, even when he flies down to earth for a mood elevating session with Noodle. Noodle complains that he's always dirty and that even so, birds think he's a neat treat to eat. But with an upbeat friend like Lou, eventually things start looking up--even for Noodle.
NOODLE HAD TO ADMIT
THAT HE AND HIS FRIEND
WERE A VERY GOOD FIT.
In their just published Noodle & Lou (Beach Lane Books, 2011), Liz Garton Scanlon's easy rhymes and Arthur Howard's charming and personable illustrations are downright uplifting. If a bird and a worm can find common ground, there's hope for us all!
