Sandra @ The Musings of a Book Addict
The Doodled doggy is the story of what happens when a doodle comes to life. The illustrator doodles a crazy looking dog on his paper that comes to life. When he tries to erase it the dog tells him to chase him. He draws mitts, nets, mazes and many other things to try to stop the doggy. Want to know what worked? Read this wonderful book to find out. My grandson loved having me read this book to him. More than the story, he loved the pictures and laughed at how the dog escaped the eraser. His constant remark was “the doggy’s funny”. I am always on the lookout for wonderful books for my grandchildren. For we need great books for the younger age to create future readers. Jason’s books do just that.

Jason Sandberg’s Doodled Doggy is a super cute picture book that’s sure to delight the preschool crowd. A quick read, Doodled Doggy follows the antics of one silly doodled dog who comes to life and does all he can to escape capture by his creator. Doodled Doggy features short, yet charming and addicting couplet rhymes that little readers will love and easily memorize. The rhyming story is perfect for being read aloud in different, fun voices.
Sandberg’s illustrations are simple, yet amusing, with their soft color palette and funny main star. The doodled doggy has a lot of character and personality, which shines off the pages. This is a character that could easily be drawn by little readers, who will definitely want to create their own doodled doggies.
Entertaining and endearing, Doodled Doggy will be a big hit with young readers who will want to read it again and again.

What makes Sandberg's books special is the fact that they are so whimsical. Reading his books makes me feel like a kid again. Sandberg's books remind me of the types of books I read as a child, and I love the concept of a new author creating, as he puts it: "the missing books from my childhood, the books I wished I'd had." I agree with Sandberg, and love the fact that I can enjoy these books with my two-year old. There's nothing better (for me at least) than snuggling up to my little girl and reading to her. And, of course, the better the book, the better our reading experience is.
What sets Jason Sandberg's books apart for me are the beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and the simple yet attention-grabbing text. His books are fun to read, and fun to just look at. I always read his books with a smile on my face---I love it when picture books make me smile!
If you have a child who loves picture books, or you're an adult who loves children's literature (absolutely NOTHING wrong with that, by the way), I would highly recommend Jason Sandberg's work!
