Publisher's Summary

This is the tale of Doodeedoo, who was made of socks and superglue by a little mouse with tiny paws, red painted lips, and well-trimmed claws.
She'd read a book called Frankenstein but never passed page 109, and as she said, "I'll have a go!" The mouse picked up some thread to sew... And so the tale goes.
A fun story for children, written in rhyme, and a lesson in not judging a book by its cover... so to speak.

cute childrens story

Would you consider the audio edition of Doodeedoo to be better than the print version?

I really think the narrator brings extra life to the story. It's wonderfully narrated.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Fred. He was a quirky character.


What about Chris Barnes’s performance did you like?

The different voices, the pacing of the narration and the great intonation. His Scottish accent is so nice to listen to and he reads beautifully.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It's a rather short children's book, so this question is not too relevant.


Any additional comments?

I was given a free copy in exchange for a review. I don't read a lot of children's books, but this one was very creative and sweet. I think it's a lovely read for primary school children.

Fun Children's Stories

Would you listen to Doodeedoo again? Why?

I listened to Doodeedoo, and the other two stories, with my youngest. He was captivated by the stories, especially Doodeedoo, and really enjoyed it. He asked to listen to it several times, especially when laying down to relax.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Doodeedoo?

The ending of the story Doodeedoo was the most memorable. It teaches children, and adults, that acceptance of someone is okay even if they are different than us. It teaches us that sometimes when a person seems angry, it's not that they are angry at us, it's that sometimes there is something more going on. Being a friend and being nice can help someone else overcome some fears and struggle. We can only give them a chance.


Which character – as performed by Chris Barnes – was your favorite?

The mouse in Doodeedoo. She was a tiny little thing but as brave as a lion. She overcame her fears by finishing a scary book, and by learning to befriend someone who seemed scary.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The book is relatively short. It has a collection of 3 different stories which gives you the option to listen to them all or listen to them one at a time. My youngest son and I listened to them all in one sitting but his favorite was Doodeedoo, and he asked to listen to that one more than the rest
