"My name is Norman David Edwards, but everybody calls me Noodle. Sometimes I get into trouble because I don't follow the rules."

Noodle is having a rough couple of days. The rules keep getting in the way of his fun! Rules for this and rules for that. There are so many rules - too many rules! Rules stink! Noodle has no use for obeying rules at home, or school. He argues about the rules and doesn't think any of them actually apply to HIM! Can't he just have a rule-free day? With help from mom, Noodle learns to visualize the consequences of no rules at all and begins to understand that rules help create a safe environment for everyone. 

This is the third book in award-winning author Julia Cook's Responsible Me! series which strengthens character development and helps kids use better social skills at school and at home. The reader will be in stitches as Noodle describes the many types of rules he deals with daily, and how much better things would be if kids like him didn't have rules to follow. Tips for parents and educators are included at the end of the storybook.
