Review first posted on jenasbookreviews.blogspot.com

It was a strange day at the zoo when Lindy, Tom, and Ben met Professor Savant. They thought he was strange when he told them about Whangdoodles but figured he was harmless and they'd never see him again. Until Halloween when Lindy said she would knock at the spookiest house on the block and who should it belong to but Professor Savant. The children had been noodling over what he said and he invites them to come learn with him how to get to Whangdoodleland to try and meet the very Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles. They will need to use every bit of imagination they possess and learn how to harness it properly to make the trip and it will take several trips to try and get to his palace especially since the Prime Minister, Oily Prock, does not want them to disturb the Whangdoodle and will do everything in his power to stop them making it to the castle.

A sweet tale of never giving up and remembering how powerful your imagination can be. I've seen several reviews compare it to Oz and Narnia and it's very easy to see why but at the same time, it's a much gentler story than those so even children who are sensitive would likely enjoy it. Dame Edwards does not disappoint as this is just the kind of story you could see her Mary Poppins telling to children in her keeping.

Note, I see that some people have expressed concern about the children entering into secret packs with a stranger. First, the Professor is known the parents although the exact nature of the relationship with the children is not but he does make it a point to contact their parents and tell them he is giving them lessons. As a parent, I think this can be used as a teaching moment about good secrets vs. bad secrets and to have a frank discussion with your child about how this is lovely in literature but not something you would want them to be keeping from you in real life. If you are concerned about that content, maybe read it yourself and decide if it's the right thing for your family or not. Not every book is right for everyone and you know your situation best.

I still remember the first time I experienced this journey! My third grade teacher read this, aloud, to our class. In the nearly 30 years since then, I did borrow it from the library once or twice. Now, I have a 7 y/o and we look for books to read together. I've been waiting for this day! She was entranced from the first chapter, just as I was nearly 30 years ago! Honestly, although it's intended for children, I don't think there's any age limit to this story. Give it a try with or without a child!

I remember my fourth grade teacher reading this book to me when I was little. I purchased this book as a fond memory I had. When I was little I remember this book as very colorful, elaborate and really imaginative.

This book is a great book for teachers AND parents to read to their children. It really helps children go deep in their imagination. It is a book that I use to want to be turned into a movie- now I think it is perfect as a book so that each child can imagine their own world, in their own way.

I think every child should be read this book.

A wonderful book for reading aloud to a 7-year old, and the best part is that there are no illustrations. Everyone gets to envision their own version of the vividly described and imaginative creatures that inhabit the book. The descriptions are so thorough that I was inspired to use different voices for a few of the characters, such as the Prock and the Splintercat. Of course, this meant I had to remember the voices between bedtime readings, which extended over a few weeks, but my son was happy to correct me until I got the right voice back. If, like me, you'd never read or even heard of this book as a child, read ahead a little bit for the Whangdoodle's voice; I made it up too early, and it was rather different than Edwards described, but somehow I thought a Texas accent was perfect. One of my son's favorite parts was the songs sung by the Oinck. Not only did he laugh so hard that he practically rolled out of bed, but he would resing the songs later just for fun. I made up the tunes on the spot, so when neither of us could remember the tunes we just made up new ones. You should take this book as lightheartedly as it was written and not try to read anything more into it. Have fun with it and you will enjoy it the most.

This was read to my class by my fifth grade teacher and I have loved this book ever since! Its so hard to find! I searched stores for months before I realized that it was probably available on amazon! Low and behold it is! The imagery in the book is absolutely incredible. A must read for children and adults alike!

One of the best kids books ever. I read it to my kids and all my grandkids. My oldest child is 50 years old. I never have been able to figure out why Disney never made a movie of this book. It would have been fantastic.

This was and is my favorite book from childhood! Even at a young age it inspired me to pay attention to details, to look up, to be creative and open minded. My mom read it to me first, then it was the first chapter book I read on my own. Love it!
This book is so much fun to read that I have given three (so far) as gifts. But the picture you show of the author is not the actual author. It was written by Julie Andrews Edwards (from “Mary Poppins” and “The Sound of Music”) She writes under her married name.
