Toodle the Cavoodle: Sniffle, Snuffle

Toodle the Cavoodle: Sniffle, Snuffle written by Richard Tulloch and illustrated by Heidi Cooper-Smith (Big Sky Publishing) PB RRP $14.99 ISBN 9781922 765772

Toodle the Cavoodle is the new children’s book series from a seriously impressive line-up of Australian talent. Toodle already has his own hit song penned by songwriter to The Wiggles, an Ambassadorship no less, and an animated series in the works.

Toodle the Cavoodle tumbles and bumbles his way through the lively Lillipilly Lane community. The bouncy, boisterous puppy knows his neighbours best from his dog’s-eye view – the grubby gumboots grandma, the smelly sneakers grandpa, the girl with sparkly sandals, and other friends. But since he shares the emotions and understanding of a young child, Toodle’s whoops-a-diddle, let-me-help, getting-underfoot antics often lead to hilarious mini-dramas, before he succeeds in bringing both old and young people together. In the end, everybody loves Toodle! 

In Book one, Sniffle Snuffle, Toodle the Cavoodle loves finding smells in the scritchy, scratchy grass. But the grandparents of Lillipilly Lane love cleaning up and finding fresh uses for junk. They’re about to turn Toodle’s favourite sniffling snuffling patch into a neat and tidy park! Oh no! What will Toodle do?

Toodle’s adventure sees him discover that he is loved no matter what — from Richard Tulloch one of Australia’s best-known storytellers.

Petbarn Foundation will donate $1 for every Toodle the Cavoodle book sold to Story Dogs assisting in the cost of training and placement of more dogs and handlers in more Australian schools.
