On a rainy afternoon several years ago, Cynthia Clack and her nephew, James, decided to
write stories. James wrote about his dog, Bear. Since Cynthia has only cats, she decided to
write about a friend’s dog, Doodles.
Cynthia Clack reading Doodles to students
Cynthia’s friend, Jo Lynn Embrey, did not like inside dogs and she hated “the goofy, French”
haircut for poodles. When her daughter, Ashley, received a teacup poodle from Dad, Jo Lynn
was determined that this little “dude” would look like an American poodle. Cynthia was
present during many of Doodles’ antics as she relates them in Doodles the American Poodle.
In her desire to teach children lessons and open the door for discussions between children
and parents, educators and counselors, Cynthia uses her incredible imagination to bring
Doodles the American Poodle™ to life. Doodles the American Poodle™ becomes a celebrity, a
hero, an entrepreneur and a philanthropist.
Doodles The American Hero was written for, and dedicated to, children whose parents serve in
the U. S. military. Denise Fleck Sober, whose husband, Joe, is an Army Ranger, was talking
to Cynthia about the children whose parents were sent overseas. In our test marketing and
reading this manuscript to children from third through fifth grades, the children have
responded enthusiastically with great understanding of world events.
