Not only is this a clever book in regards to concept, it takes a very difficult, frustrating situation (a misbehaving creature) and teaches children how love, inclusiveness, warm attention and redirection can totally transform the wayward to the wonderful. Its messaging is subtle and beautifully done.
Tania McCartney, Kids' Book Review
The easy flowing rhyme is catchy and great for kids of all ages, and the lively and fun illustrations are relatable for young ones who love to scribble and doodle themselves!

Clarke and Baysting have been composing children's songs together for a while now and it shows in their proficiency i rhythm, resulting in a text that begs to be read aloud. There is a pervasive cheekiness evident that turns out to be somewhat subversive about resourcefulness and the inherent pleasures in the world that are waiting to be employed for a child's entertainment. (Tom) Jellett deftly and successfully relies on the comic capabilities of his monster creations and the girl sidekick. The Gobbledygook and the Scribbledynoodle is an enthusiastic celebration of creativity and companionship.
