Poodlena is Perfect!

My daughter loves this story! She just named her new baby doll Poodlena! She's only 2 1/2, but we've already talked about how you don't always have to be so "fancy" all the time.

Fun for all poodle lovers

I guess that the best way to describe this book is as a cross between Eloise and Dr. Seuss. The illustrations are adorable and I wish that I could have a print to frame of Poodlena primping and "pinking" herself up. This is a darling little book that I would recommend to all poodle lovers, young and old. [If you've never been owned by a poodle you wouldn't understand.]


This is one of the best children's books I've come across for this age range. The perfect gift for a little girl, especially if she loves PINK (all the pages are very pink).

Adorable New Children's Book

Ms. Poodlena Pompadour, a poofy, pink poodle, lives quite the life in a high-rise apartment on the very top floor, in a beautiful big city. Every day Poodlena has a crew of stylists come into her high-rise apartment to primp her up. They poof her, and pink her, and fluff her right up. Then, she is taken to the park at three quarters past four everyday, where, as opposed to playing, like the other dogs who visit the park daily, she parades by them on the walking trail, making sure to never get messy. However, by doing this, Poodlena never has the opportunity to have any fun, for you must get a bit dirty to have some fun. So, after a long rain, Poodlena gets all puffed up, and heads to the park, where she is promptly knocked into the mud by a dog chasing a ball. It is only then that Poodlena realizes that she would have much more fun if she spent less time poofing, and more time playing. E.B. McHenry has created an enchanting new character in POODLENA. Told in a wonderful rhyming prose, and filled with wonderful illustrations, featuring various pink puffs and swirls, and pink little curls, POODLENA is sure to become a hit with children. A must-have on the bookshelf for any family, whether you have children or not. Erika Sorocco Book Review Columnist for The Community Bugle Newspaper


Poodlena Pompadour, the dainty pink puddle, lives a rather glamorous life-style on the top floor of a high-rise. Her male owner fluffs her cotton candy-like head of hair, which is of course pink, as well as, powders and perfumes her each day before her afternoon play time at the park. Much too stunning to join in with the other dogs in their rough games, Poodlena simply remains spotless on the sidewalk. After a heavy rainfall an unforeseen twist occurs that alters Poodlena's prissy routine. E. B. McHenry's charming story is definitely a girly-girl book. With the powder pink pages and countless beauty supplies many girls will be able to relate to the primping that Poodlena endures. The surroundings appear French, from the manuscript font to Poodlena's owner's attire. The song-like verse and softly painted illustrations are remarkable. E. B. McHenry's writing style resembles David Kirk of the Miss Spider books. E. B. McHenry writes in four-line rhyming verses, similar to Mr. Kirk, to tell the frilly life of "little miss" Poodlena, whose daily regimen keeps her pristine. excerpt: "In a big-city high-riseOn the very top floorLived a pink, fluffy poodle-Poodlena Pompadour. She wore on her headA pink mountain of hair,As light as a feather,And mostly pink air."
