Format: Hardcover
Dudley is a hand puppet set inside a book. He has bad manners - shouting instead of singing, talking in the cinema and refusing to clean his teeth.

Verity (2 1/2 years old) loves him and we have used Dudley to teach her what good manners are. As well as asking us to control and be Dudley's voice, she will also sometime control him herself and have long conversations with him.

To make a book interactive by simply combining it with a hand puppet is a genius idea and it makes a refreshing change from 'sit down and listen' storytelling.

An easy 5 stars.

My 3 and 4 year old daughters dissolved into fits of giggles at this one. It is a glove puppet inside a book (you operate it from the back). They just love the fact that Dudley leaps out of the book to talk, eat, sing, sneeze and snore at them, and that they choose what he does next. We have Calm Down Boris by the same author on order. If it's half as good I'll be pleased. Only downside is that the girls didn't rate Dudley's singing very highly . . . erm, maybe I should go and practice a bit more.

I recently bought 3 Sam Lloyd books: Calm Down Boris, You're not so Scary Sid and Hello Dudley. This book 'Hello Dudley' stands out as being the one my children love the most (I'm mum of 3 and childminder of many). The book is brilliant in the way it becomes a glove puppet and I don't get a look in as the children always want to be Dudley. They love making the rude noises, singing songs (although I always have to change the bit where you have to say Dudley sounds awful as the children do their best renditions of 'Twinkle, Twinkle' etc when it's time for Dudley to sing a song). The everyday choices of Dudley choosing what to eat, where to blow his nose in the cinema and whether or not to open his mouth to clean his teeth are hilarious and I don't think I've ever had so much fun with a childrens book. It's lovely for the children to take control.
From a childminders perspective you can also turn this into a story sack cheaply yourself by proving the children with hankies and toothbrushes to help Dudley.
My favourite childrens book is The Gruffalo but this now runs it a close second. From the childrens perspective this is number 1 though.
Very, very highly recommended.

This is a lovely book and is certainly up there with classics like The Hungry Caterpillar. My son (who's 11 months old) adores Hello Dudley and laughs out loud every time we read it. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Format: Hardcover
Well, I don't usually bother to write reviews for anything i buy or have, but always read them so hopefully this will help anyone thinking about buying this book. Do it. Do it now.
My 2 year old son loves this book and especially the naughtiness of Dudley with his sneezing and burping and 'special present' in the bathroom lavatory (if you have the book, you'll know what i mean!)
In our house if my son accidentally burps (or worse) the first thing out of his mouth is "Oh Dudley!" ....very funny.

A great interactive book and one you will read with your little ones again and again..I'm off to get some more Sam Lloyd books now!
Cherio......

My students love Dudley,he is naughty but adorable with it.
I like to get the children to interact with this book,and it works ,I always use a toothbrush to try and brush Dudley's teeth but he never lets me but will let one of my students.
It is a book that keeps the class quiet.
And I love reading this book it brings out the kid in me.

I bought this for my 3 year old son last christmas and he absolutely loves it. I've never heard him laugh so much at a book! The only downside for me is that I can't read it to him before bed,it winds him up too much and takes me an hour to calm him down. Will definitely be buying more books from this author.

I purchased this as a gift, after receiving Calm Down Boris as a present. It's really good that you can make it as interactive as you like with choosing what Dudley wants to eat and sing etc. Very funny, little ones and not so little ones will love it.
