About The Book

Welcome to Mister Doodle’s world—it’s different as can be. Come along and help explore his world from A to Z.

In C Is for City, we meet Mister Doodle—a stick figure who lives somewhere in between the real world and a child’s imagination. He’s smart and sophisticated with a hint of goofiness—a winning combination that allows him to teach the ABC’s while entertaining! C Is for City introduces toddlers to a unique art style—a mixture of black line art and photography—never before seen in board books. The black ink drawings are simple and clean. The photographs are colorful, and chosen strategically to highlight each letter being taught.

The Mister Doodle books also have a “hidden” layer of educational content for hours of fun learning! On each page of C Is for City, toddlers will learn multiple words that start with that particular letter—not just the one word mentioned in the text. For example, they will discover that not only is C for “City,” but C is for “car” or “cab” as well.

The entertainment and educational value of this alphabet book far surpasses one read!

Raves and Reviews

In stick-figure Mister Doodle's second book, he decides that his dog Sketch's shed needs some spiffing up with paint and debates what color might be best. Readers expecting a multicolored solution may be surprised by the end result. The imaginative photo-collage scenes and lively verse make for another charming outing for Mister Doodle.
