Noodle Head by Giles Andreae and Lalalimola (Picture Puffin)

Here's a fun picture book that lets you get away with being naughty - at least for a few pages....
Name calling isn't very nice really, but in "Noodle Head" a good natured duo must learn to get along, and get past their petty insults - finding out that friendship is much more fun than being at odds with each other.

Flippy and Floppy are the best of pals, until one day there's a bit of a nasty falling out over a bag of sweeties.

Before long, some pretty horrid names are being thrown around...




...and those aren't the worst. But like most childhood arguments, this one doesn't last long and soon Flippy and Floppy find far nicer names to call each other, and shared sweeties taste far better than anything else. 

Fun and fizzing with energy, we loved the cartoony illustrations and of course C loved any book that gives her an excuse to call her old man names. 

"Noodle Head" by Giles Andreae and Lalalimola is out now, published by Picture Puffin (kindly supplied for review).
