In the award-winning book Snoodles, Kidoodles, Poodles, and Lots and Lots of Noodles, Steven Joseph and Andy Case introduced us to a world where everyone was happy because of one man, Herbie Snoodleman, the inventor of the Snoodlemoblie, powered solely by noodles. It had replaced Sour Croodleman's Krautmobile, which ran on sauerkraut and made everyone quite a bit cranky.

In this follow-up book, when the Zoodle Kidoodles from the planet Zoodle abduct Norman Noodle and Sally Stroodle, the Zoodle Kidoodles threaten to take all of Earth's noodles— unless they perform the necessary brain operation on their grand leader, Cloodle the Grand Roodle, and fix their spaceship's failing engines.

The one problem? Norman Noodle and Sally Stroodle are simple bakers. Sour Croodleman's Prickly Peppered Purple Propulsion Powered Pickle invention is their only hope, but will he unite with Herbie Snoodleman to save the planet?

The answer is here, in this Wackadoodle Tale from Outer Space!

"Snoodles in Space gives young readers interested in science and space a whole bunch of fodder for entertainment, laughs, and energy. The metaphor for clean energy gets me all sorts of excited at the prospect of talking about this with kids. Not only do we get to talk about something deeply important—taking care of our planet—but they can get giddy in the goofy names and wackadoodle plotline. It also gives me much hope and happiness that Sour and Herbie find ways to mend their issues in order to look out for the planet and their family. It's a children's story with heart, mind, and an abundance of powerful noodles." - Toni Woodruff  - Independent Book Review

"Wackadoodle is just the right word to describe this oodles-of-fun space adventure, in which humorous language and an improbable plot combine to disguise some important messages about family, respect, and appreciation." - Dr. Jan Harrison - Children's Book Review

"Snoodles in Space is a wonderful introduction for young readers to the thrilling genre of science fiction. Steven Joseph's humorous writing style borders on goofiness. Andy Case has created amazing illustrations with a vintage style, reminding us of the classic picture books of our childhood. The imagery is unusual and will stimulate creative thinking. The adventure aspect is impressive, and the plotline provides many unexpected twists. Joseph touches on important topics such as family values, mutual understanding, and willingness to help despite disagreements, leading his young readers in a positive direction. I highly recommend this second book in the series to those readers who love humorous prose with an adventurous element and lovable characters." - Nino Lobiladze - Readers' Favorite

"Replete with wacky inventions and glorious illustrations (with some important lessons thrown in for good measure), Steven Joseph's SNOODLES IN SPACE offers a diverting introduction into the author's wild and wacky 'Snoodleverse.' " - Craig Jones - IndieReader

"To say this book is silly (in a good way) would be true. But in one sense, such a statement is misleading due to what is below the story's surface. Yes, Snoodles and Krautmobiles and vehicles fueled by pasta are far out there, imagination-wise, but the underlying messages of family, loyalty, and the greater good make this book a delicious read. This zany look at the world is pure fun, and anyone who picks up the book will undoubtedly want to meet the author. His sense of humor and imagination are unparalleled. Joseph created this back-to-the-future tale in two parts, and while the current volume is technically a sequel, it can also be read as a standalone." - Toby Berry - US Review of Books

"What I really loved about this book is the way so many of the words rhymed and kept with the noodle theme of the book. The plot reminded me of the cartoons I used to watch after school or on Saturday mornings where the good guys had to save the world from the bad guys and their evil plans. I could easily see this book and its characters turning into a cartoon series for children." - Kristi Elizabeth - Manhattan Book Review
