Read with Mummy - The Tickle Book

Review of 'The Tickle book' by author Ian Whybrow and illustrator Axel Scheffler 

Read with Mummy

Look out - there's a Ticklemonster about! And he's off to tickle all his animal friends, from the pigs on the farm to penguins at the zoo. Join Tom and Bear as they follow him on his adventures, but watch out - you might get tickled too!

This pop-up paperback book features a laugh-out-loud text by Ian Whybrow that is full of witty rhymes and silly scenarios, and illustrations by Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo. Bursting with funny details, The Tickle Book is a bedtime book with a difference. Best of all, children can join in the fun with flaps to lift, wheels to turn, tabs to pull and pop-up surprises on every page!

This book causes peels of giggles whenever it is opened! The fun story and child friendly flaps are a huge winner with Elliot. He loves the little signs in the page corners saying what is to come on the next page. 

Sometimes we find it difficult to read the extra bits of text due to either uncontrollable laughter or Elliot's desire to find the tickle monster under a flap as quickly as possible, before he rolls around giggling! Usually distracting him by the fascinating illustrations works, as he loves to spot other animals and to find the Gruffalo mouse.


As you can see, we don't get very far reading this book sometimes! Elliot reading 'The Tickle Book' before bed. Sorry, sadly video only seems to work from a computer not a phone.

A very fun book to read and a firm favourite, with engaging text. From a parents point of view, if we are wanting a calm bedtime, the book sadly goes missing! The tickle monster has gone to bed early! 

It is great to have a book so loved by him. Fabulous.
